Dolphins kick tires on Croyle, Edwards

The Miami Dolphins, at the very least, need a backup quarterback if Chad Henne (shoulder) is out for a significant period. So Miami kicked tires earlier this week on Brodie Croyle and Trent Edwards, ESPN.com's John Clayton reports.

It's unclear if Miami will sign either quarterback. Dolphins backup Matt Moore is getting first-team reps in practice during Miami's bye week.

But neither Croyle nor Edwards should instill much confidence in Miami turning its season around. Both quarterbacks struggled mightily with Kansas City and Buffalo, respectively.

Miami's next game will be against the New York Jets on "Monday Night Football" Oct. 17.
