After defeating Hodgkin lymphoma to return to the football field this month, it’s no surprise Chiefs safety Eric Berry is pretty popular these days.

According to a jersey report released by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Berry’s No. 29 jersey has risen from No. 103 to No. 43 in overall NFL jersey sales the past 30 days.

For what it’s worth, running back Jamaal Charles is still the highest-ranked Chiefs at No. 29 in the past 30 days, ahead of the likes of Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman (No. 31), Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan (No. 33) and Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green (No. 35).
