 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Damon Huard is out and Brodie Croyle is in as starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Coach Herm Edwards said Monday the strong-armed Croyle, who came in for a shaken-up Huard against Denver on Sunday, would start at Indianapolis this week as the Chiefs try to snap a two-game losing streak and revive one of the NFL's weakest offenses.
``You need a spark,'' Edwards said. ``We've been in some contests now where we haven't had the ability to score points. That's part of your job as a quarterback, to put points on the board and move the football team. We've moved at times, but we've also been very inconsistent.''
Croyle was 17-for-30 for 162 yards, with one interception, in the 27-11 loss that dropped Kansas City to 4-5.
Huard, an 11-year veteran, was a career backup until he took over for the injured Trent Green last year and played well in eight games. Huard then beat out Croyle in the preseason for the starter's job but has been inconsistent - before Croyle came in Sunday he had thrown two interceptions and lost a fumble in that game.
``Damon's done a good job helping us win four games. It's never on one guy, obviously,'' Edwards said. ``You need a spark. We've been in some contests now where we haven't had the ability to score points.
``At this point in time, this is a chance for me and this organization to evaluate a young player that we think has a chance to play quarterback. But you don't know until he has an opportunity.''
A third-round pick in 2006 out of Alabama, Croyle will be the first quarterback drafted by Kansas City to start a game for the Chiefs since Todd Blackledge, who was drafted in 1983.
