    Default Huard To Start Sunday


    0 Not allowed!
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Damon Huard's injured shoulder held up
    fine in practice Wednesday and he will be Kansas City's starting
    quarterback Sunday against Cincinnati.

    Huard was hurt in the fourth quarter of last week's game against
    Jacksonville and there had been reports he would be benched this
    week in favor of second-year man Brodie Croyle.

    "Right now, unless he has a setback, he's going to play," said
    coach Herm Edwards, who on Monday and Tuesday said he could not be
    sure of Huard's status. "And that's good for us."

    While there apparently will not be a change at quarterback,
    there will be some young players who get playing time when the
    Chiefs (2-3) and their feeble offense host the Bengals, Edwards
    said.

    Asked to identify the new players, Edwards would only mention
    fullback Boomer Grigsby.

    "Watch the game and you'll see," he said. "There are four or
    five guys who need to go play. It's time. We need to start playing
    them. So that's what's going to happen."

    Huard, 34, looked to be throwing with a free and easy motion
    during the early part of practice that reporters are allowed to
    attend. Edwards said he had some good passes and "some not so
    good."

    "But even when he's OK, there are some good and some not so
    good," the coach said with a grin. "I don't know where he's at
    after practice. Tomorrow if his arm's sore, then I'll know more.
    But right now, he felt OK in practice."

    Croyle, 24, has been designated as Kansas City's quarterback of
    the future and looked good in brief mop-up duty. His 13-yard
    touchdown pass on the final play from scrimmage in Sunday's 17-7
    loss to Jacksonville enabled the Chiefs to avoid their first home
    shutout in 13 years.

    "I haven't been told anything," Croyle said before Edwards met
    with reporters. "I'm sure you guys will know something before I
    do."

    Huard, who speaks with the media only on Thursdays, did say in
    passing that his shoulder felt much better. He seemed unable to
    raise his arm after the game Sunday, and the rapid recovery was
    apparently not what Edwards expected.

    "I was surprised," Edwards said. "Obviously, after the game,
    you look at the guy and you think, `Wow.' But he's OK. We didn't
    cut back on him throwing certain routes. He threw everything we
    wanted him to throw."

    At least some of the changes Edwards has in mind could
    presumably be on an offense that is averaging only 65 yards rushing
    and 12.6 points. Wide receiver Bobby Sippio may be one who gets his
    first start.

    Grigsby, a fan favorite even though he has played only on
    special teams, will be used as a blocking back to help get Larry
    Johnson going. A two-time Pro Bowler who rushed for more than 3,400
    yards the past two seasons, Johnson ranks 22nd this week in the NFL
    and is averaging a paltry 3.3 yards per carry. He has suffered from
    poor blocking by an offensive line that is being physically
    dominated on many plays.

    "On Sunday (Grigsby) will make his grand appearance," Edwards
    said. "We need to get him in the game. We need to get him more
    involved than in just special teams. We need to let him do some
    things out of the backfield."

    Grigsby will rotate with Kris Wilson, who has been used mostly
    as a receiver instead of a blocker.

    His development at fullback was hampered by a pulled abdominal
    muscle that kept him out of two preseason games.

    "It was just a sissy injury," he said. "I hope I can go in
    there and get the job done. But at the same time, once (Johnson)
    gets rolling, he's going to get rolling. It's not going to be
    because I'm playing fullback that all of a sudden Larry Johnson is
    what he used to be."

    Yup!

    Sippio has been contributing on Special Teams.

    Sippio and Bowe are going to be a great tandem with Gonzo. If Huard doesn't start getting TD's and some 300-yard games with those guys to throw to, we need to try Brodie. I like Huard because he makes good decisions, but you also have to be able to create and capitalize-on opportunites. Especially when you have receivers and a TE like these..
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    True Huard doesn't take the INT but if he doesn't get the guys the ball then he isn't helping us either.

    Agreed, but you still have to account for the play of our "O" line when assessing the QB performance; whomever it is.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    Also, the fact that with such young, inexperienced WRs, miscommunication can play bigger role. I sure hope things work out this week.
