Croyle tests his arm

Chiefs backup quar­ter­back Brodie Croyle re­turned to prac­tice last week, but he threw his first passes Mon­day af­ter missing most of the last two weeks be­cause of a right arm in­jury.

In a team drill Mon­day, Croyle handed off on his first two snaps and then threw to­ward tight end Leonard Pope, who dropped Croyle’s pass. Croyle com­pleted two passes to Pope be­fore the end of the ses­sion, and one of those was in the end zone.

“It was good to see him out there,” coach Todd Ha­ley said of Croyle. “He’s one of the guys that has to get bet­ter to help us be­come a good team. To see him out there and get through, with no is­sues, I thought it was a good sign.

“He didn’t look overly rusty, al­though we all had cans of Rust-Oleum in our pock­ets.”

Af­ter Croyle was in­jured, the Chiefs signed Bill Stull to be the third quar­ter­back dur­ing Croyle’s ab­sence. Stull was re­leased Sun­day, along with three oth­ers, as the team be­gan ros­ter trims.
