News: Berry (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
Impact: A matchup against the Jets for Berry's return would be a blessing for his IDP owners. Berry's practice activity should continue to be monitored, as his high-ankle sprain kept him out last week even though he participated in practice leading up to the game.
News: Parker had an interception, a sack, a pass deflection and four tackles Sunday against the Rams.
Impact: Parker continues to impress in relief of Eric Berry at safety. When Berry returns, as it appears he will at some point in the near future, Parker will likely move back to cornerback where he should challenge for a starting gig.
News: Bailey recorded 1.5 sacks and four tackles (three solo) against the Rams on Sunday.
Impact: Bailey also had 1.5 sacks in Week 5, but was quiet against the 49ers a few weeks ago, after Kansas City's bye. He has more sacks through seven games this season than he's had over his first three seasons combined (largely due to extra playing time). If he is able to continue producing, he may keep his starting job heading into next season.
News: Smith (shoulder) will practice Wednesday, BJ Kissel of KCChiefs.com reports.
Impact: Smith's level of participation has yet to be clarified, but his presence Wednesday -- in any capacity -- is a good sign that the shoulder sprain the QB suffered in Week 8 is not likely to prevent him from starting Sunday's game against the Jets.
News: Smith plans to practice Wednesday despite spraining his troublesome throwing shoulder in last weekend's victory over the St. Louis Rams.
Impact: Smith landed on his right shoulder shortly before halftime. He received treatment in the locker room and played the entire second half, complaining only later of a bit of soreness. The Chiefs play the New York Jets on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
