KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry
Johnson will be deactivated for the second week in a row, and
quarterbacks Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard were placed on injured
reserved on Wednesday.
That leaves third-teamer Tyler Thigpin to start Sunday at the
New York Jets.
Johnson, a two-time Pro Bowler, was not active last week as
punishment for breaking team rules. The running back is under
investigation by the NFL after a woman accused him of spitting at
her two weeks ago in a Kansas City nightclub.
The Chiefs were also completing paperwork Wednesday and
preparing to sign quarterback Quinn Gray, a member of the Houston
Texans and Indianapolis Colts for parts of the season.
