Ahead of the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs had an important injury update.

Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid revealed on Wednesday that star safety Eric Berry was a full participant in practice.

The three-time All-Pro safety missed the Chiefs' last two games with a calf injury. Berry has played in just three games in the last two seasons.

Running back Spencer Ware and tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif were both reportedly limited in practice.

Berry is an unquestioned difference-maker for the Chiefs on defense.

In his nine year career, Berry has played 15 or more games only five times. But he has made the Pro Bowl in each of those five seasons.

For his career, he has 14 interceptions, five pick-sixes, 51 passes defended, four forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks, 448 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, and 14 quarterback hits.

If Berry gets cleared to play against the Patriots, there's a good chance is presence will be felt in the AFC Championship Game.

The Chiefs and the Patriots are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T. on Sunday. The game will be televised on CBS.
