[Kansas City.com] Chiefs quarterback Brodie Croyle is done for the 2008 season, according to head coach Herm Edwards, after leaving Kansas City’s game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with a left knee injury. The Chiefs then lost his backup, Damon Huard, to a right hand injury later in the same game.
Croyle, back in the lineup after separating his shoulder in the season opener, limped off the field early in the second quarter on Sunday. Edwards said after halftime that Croyle would not return for the remainder of the season, but did not specify the injury.
On a 3rd-and-18 from the Tennessee 38, Croyle dropped back to throw and was hit by two Tennessee defenders. Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was wrapped around Croyle’s legs when another defender came in and hit the QB from behind, twisting Croyle just after he got the pass off.
The Alabama product missed four games after suffering the shoulder injury in Kansas City’s 17-10 loss to the New England Patriots on September 7. He is 0-8 in his eight career starts, and has been injured in four of his 12 career games.
