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.
