Kansas City Chiefs Safety Eric Berry, Who Is Battling Lymphona, Visited Alma Mater Tennessee Today

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry was a star at Tennessee from 2007-09 before embarking on an NFL career. Berry's NFL journey was abruptly put on hold last fall when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. 

Berry's illness shocked the football world, and he remains in a battle against the disease. The message from Berry and his family members has been an upbeat one as he continues his fight, and today he returned to Knoxville to visit his brothers Evan and Elliott, who currently play for the Volunteers.

Berry's visit was part of Tennessee's family day, where the program opens its practice up to players' families.
