KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Chiefs quarterback Damon Huard is awaiting test results on his bruised shoulder that will determine if he can play this week against Cincinnati. If Huard is out, backup Brodie Croyle will start.
Huard was hurt late in the fourth quarter Sunday of a 17-7 loss to Jacksonville. He was scheduled for an MRI on Monday and said he was unsure if he would be ready for the next game.
Croyle replaced Huard and directed a last-minute scoring drive, completing a 13-yard touchdown pass on the final play from scrimmage that enabled the Chiefs to avoid their first shutout at home since 1994. The Chiefs rushed for only 10 yards, the lowest total this year in the NFL.
The 24-year-old Croyle is 10 years younger than Huard. He appeared ready to take over as starter until he performed poorly during preseason.
``I feel the same as I felt going into training camp, after training camp,'' said Croyle, a second-year player. ``I always felt whenever my time was called, we're going to run with it. If that's this week, great. If not, then whenever it comes.''
