The Kansas City Chiefs starters probably won't see much time against the Green Bay Packers at Arrowhead Stadium this evening.
But the backups will. One of the backups that will see considerable time is Brodie Croyle.
Croyle's been out the last few weeks with an arm injury. He played in the first preseason game and hasn't played since.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley confirmed that Croyle will likely see more action than usual this time around.
"I think it’s a fair statement that he’s missed a considerable amount of time that adds up pretty quick for a quarterback. I think snaps that he can get will be positive, that’s for sure.”
Last year in the final preseason game Croyle played most of the first half but that was because Matt Cassel was injured in the previous game and the Chiefs knew Croyle was likely to play the first game so they had to get him prepared.
Ideally, Croyle doesn't play much this season but the Chiefs need to be prepared if Cassel goes down for a game like he did last year.
