Croyle taking snaps for Chiefs

AP: Taking most of the practice snaps on Wednesday was Brodie Croyle, who is 0-9 as an NFL starter and has not appeared in a game all year.

While the Chiefs released no details of the operation, the American College of Surgeons website advises patients who have had a minimally invasive appendectomy not to “lift or participate in strenuous activity for three to five days” after the procedure. … Croyle, a third-round pick out of Alabama in 2006, was projected as the Chiefs’ foundation quarterback before Herman Edwards was fired as head coach after the 2008 season. Injury prone, he immediately dropped to second team when new general manager Scott Pioli traded for Cassel before the 2009 season. Croyle has not started since the 2009 season opener, when Cassel was hurt. Croyle said this week will be no different than any other for him, other than the fact he’ll be getting more practice reps.

“Just got to prepare like you always do,” he said. “My number’s called, got to be ready to go. You’ve got to be ready to go on any play.” (read the entire AP report on the Chiefs below)
