According to ESPN, The Kansas City Chiefs have placed Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry on the non-football illness list after a mass was discovered in his chest following Thursday night's game against the Oakland Raiders.

Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said that there has been no definitive diagnosis, but the leading possibility is lymphoma.

Berry, 25, released a statement through the team.

"I am truly thankful for all of the support from family, friends, coaches, teammates and the entire Chiefs kingdom," Berry said. "At first I was in shock with the diagnosis on Saturday and did not even want to miss a game, but I understand that right now I have to concentrate on a new opponent.

"I have great confidence in the doctors and the plan they are going to put in place for me to win this fight. I believe that I am in God's hands and I have great peace in that.

"I know my coaches and teammates will hold things down here the rest of the season and until I am back running out of the tunnel at Arrowhead. I am so thankful and appreciative of being a part of this franchise and playing in front of the best fans in the NFL. I will be back!"
