KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brodie Croyle limped off with a sprained left knee against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, his first game back since separating his shoulder in the season opener.

After the game, Chiefs coach Herm Edwards said Croyle’s injury would end his season.

The oft-injured former Alabama quarterback, back after missing four games, was injured on Kansas City’s 14th play when he was sandwiched between two rushing defenders while throwing a pass early in the second quarter. He limped off the field, slammed his helmet to the turf once he reached the sideline, then hobbled down a tunnel.

Croyle has been injured in four of his eight career starts. He is winless as a starter.
