Chiefs coach Andy Reid said it was great to have safety Eric Berry back on the field.

"He was fired up," Reid said. "He was out of control in the locker room before the game. He was just excited. He was just ready to go. I'm very happy for him."

Reid felt that the first team could have performed better.

"The one's could have been sharper, with a long drive with their offense against our defense," he said. "We had a big play there and it was too much. Then we came back and tightened it up there with that second drive, defensively.

"Offensively, we had a couple blown assignments there and you blow an assignment and things are going to happen negatively. That's kind of what happened there with the interception. We've got to make sure to tighten that up and get better."

Reid and the Chiefs training staff decided to show caution with wide receiver Chris Conley, who's been dealing with a knee issue.

"We suited him up and we got a good workout with him. We lathered him up but we chose just to hold him out for another week here. He's made a lot of progress."

Reid wasn't surprised that WR Fred Williams played well.

"You know, he's had a good camp," he said of Williams. "Freddie's a good player. He comes from little St. Cloud (State) in Minnesota there and he's been around, but he's a competitive guy. He's a lot of fun to be around and plays hard. He gives you what he did today. He'll make those plays."

Reid was very impressed with quarterback Chase Daniel, who threw for three touchdowns and 189 yards.

"We feel Chase is a top-caliber quarterback," he said. "We're fortunate to have Chase here. He has an opportunity there to work against younger guys like that and he's going to look pretty doggone good.

"He took some hits though tonight and he hung in there. That's what separates you a little bit. That's quite a deal."
