News: Berry is continuing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma, leaving his future with the team in question.
Impact: The star safety is due more than $8 million next season, the final year of his current contract - a big salary cap number for someone unlikely to play a game.

News: Berry has been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impact: "This is a diagnosis that is very treatable and potentially curable with standard chemotherapy approaches," Dr. Christopher R. Flowers of Emory's Winship Cancer Institute (where Berry will be treated) noted in a statement released by the Chiefs on Monday. "The goal of Mr. Berry's treatment is to cure his lymphoma and we are beginning that treatment now."

News: Berry has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease and will begin chemotherapy for what doctors called a "very treatable and potentially curable" form of cancer. Hodgkin's disease is a form of lymphoma originating in white blood cells.
Impact: Berry had been undergoing tests at Emory University in Atlanta since an MRI exam nearly two weeks ago showed a mass on the right side of his chest that was suspected to be lymphoma. Berry said in a statement that he will "embrace this process and attack it the same way I do everything else in life. God has more than prepared me for it." The former All-Pro safety has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
