QB Croyle Happy to Be Back After Injury

The KC Star has a feature today on QB Brodie Croyle, who says he’s happy to be back from being hurt and is ready to go again:

QB Brodie Croyle, after missing all the offseason practices because he was rehabilitating from knee surgery, returned to play when the Chiefs started training camp two weeks ago. Croyle, a former starter, is competing for a backup spot behind Matt Cassel. “I think for the first couple of days, it was tough for him to get back into the mode of practicing, but then he picked it up in day three or four,” Chiefs coach Todd Haley said. “I think he’s making progress, but missing (the offseason practices) was definitely tough.

“A lot of it was just rust. He’s got a couple of things to deal with: getting confidence back that his knee is OK, for one. If you’ve had that injury, there’s a mental side you have to overcome. But really it’s just rust, not getting the team in and out of the huddle, being slow, calling it wrong at the line of scrimmage, different things. Then not getting the ball out as quick as we’d like it to come out, but again, he’s picked it up since then and made positive progress.
