Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry participated in practice on Wednesday for the first time since August.
"We'll see how he does and we'll ease him back into it," Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters prior to Wednesday's practice. "The communication has been great. ... We'll see how he does. He and I will talk. We'll talk with the (doctor) and the trainers."
Reid said that he is not certain if Berry will play for the Chiefs (9-2) in their road game against the Oakland Raiders (2-9) on Sunday (4:05 p.m. ET).
Berry is bidding to return to game action after rupturing his left Achilles' tendon sustained in the fourth quarter of the 2017 season opener against the New England Patriots.
A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Berry has dealt with obstacles since entering the NFL in 2010.
Berry missed the 2011 campaign after tearing the ACL in his left knee and missed most of the 2014 season after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The 29-year-old Berry underwent treatment for the lymphoma and returned for the start of the 2015 season.
Berry had four interceptions -- returning two for touchdowns -- along with 77 tackles in 2016. He has returned five of his 14 career interceptions for scores.
The 6-foot, 212-pound Berry also has 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 87 career contests since being selected by Kansas City with the fifth overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.
