DETROIT -- Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brodie Croyle injured his right hand in the second quarter at Detroit and was replaced by Damon Huard.

"MRI came back negative; it's not broken," Chiefs coach Herm Edwards said after losing to Detroit 25-20. "We'll see where he's at going into next week. Brodie probably couldn't have went back."

Croyle was hurt when he lunged at Lions cornerback Travis Fisher, who was blocking for linebacker Paris Lennon as he returned an interception for a touchdown that put Detroit ahead 19-0.

Huard hadn't played since Week 11.

The Chiefs needed Huard to stay healthy because they didn't have a third quarterback active.
