01/20/15 - QB Tyler Bray suffered a torn ACL, apparently after the season ended. The Chiefs announced the injury, but didn't reveal how or when it happened. Said general manager John Dorsey, "Anytime one of your players suffers a significant injury like Tyler's it is disappointing, and we hurt for the player."
Bray spent the entire 2014 season on injured reserve after injuring his knee and ankle in the final preseason game.
The latest injury likely occurred prior to Jan. 7, which was only 10 days after the final regular-season. It was on that day that QB Terrelle Pryor had a tryout with the Chiefs, and he was signed the following day.
Said Dorsey, "With Tyler's injury having a longer recovery time, we've signed quarterback Terrelle Pryor to a reserve/futures contract. As we've said before, we are always looking to add talented players to our roster, and Terrelle was among the top players on our ready list at that position with his athleticism and experience. We believe having him in our quarterback room and working with our offensive coaches will enhance his growth."
09/01/14 - QB Tyler Bray suffered ankle and knee injuries in the preseason finale against Green Bay and the Chiefs decided that was enough to send him to the injured reserve list for the season. Bray did not appear injured in the locker room after the game and walked out under his own power. But he'll take the equivalent of a redshirt season in 2014.
08/29/14 - QB Tyler Bray suffered knee and ankle injuries in the Chiefs' final preseason game according to head coach Andy Reid. The team did not mention his problems after the game in Green Bay, but on Friday Reid acknowledged that his young quarterback came out of the game with a sore ankle. Then after the game, he had a swollen knee. How serious the injuries are and whether they will play a part in roster selection remains to be seen.
08/25/14 - QB Tyler Bray got his most extensive playing time of the preseason against Minnesota, as he directed the Chiefs' offense for five possessions in the second half. Although he started poorly, missing on his first seven throws, he eventually led the only touchdown drive of the game for Kansas City. Bray was seven-for-seven in that possession.
09/01/13 - Even before they played their final game of the preseason, the Chiefs had made the decision that rookie free agent quarterback Tyler Bray had beaten out holdover Ricky Stanzi for the No. 3 job behind starter Alex Smith and backup Chase Daniel.
Given a chance to play for more than a half against Green Bay, Bray showed the confidence in him was well founded. Working with the No. 2 and 3 offenses against backup defenders from the Packers, he threw three touchdown passes and led the Chiefs to their biggest preseason victory in a decade, topping Green Bay 30-8.
"I'm proud of him; it was awesome," said Daniel. "He finally got a chance to play and show what he's got. We all knew what he had physically, but tonight he was on point mentally. He played a heck of a game."
08/08/13 - QB Tyler Bray, the undrafted free agent out of the University of Tennessee, has shown continued growth as camp has gone on. During recent practices he's been the most productive passer on the field. Granted he's going against the No. 3 defense, but Bray only gets a handful of snaps, and he's making those plays count. Bray has taken control of the battle for the No. 3 quarterback spot over Ricky Stanzi and behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel. He has the strongest arm of any of the quarterbacks and his practice accuracy has improved dramatically from the team's spring workouts.
05/01/13 - Chiefs Agree to Terms with 13 Rookie Free Agents...QB Tyler Bray (6-6, 215) played in 28 games (24 starts) with Tennessee completing 540 passes on 922 attempts (58.6 pct.) for 7,444 yards with 69 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. Bray prepped at Kingsburg High School in Kingsburg, California. - KCChiefs.com
04/29/13 - Former Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after going undrafted Saturday, according to an ESPN report. The No. 92 overall prospect by NFLDraftScout.com entering the draft and the No. 7-rated quarterback, Bray headed a star-laden group of underclassmen who went undrafted.
Projeced as a third-round prospect, Bray was one of several quarterbacks who slid dramatically during the three-day event due to a general lack of need for most of the 32 teams in the NFL. Florida State's EJ Manuel was the only quarterback selected in the first round, and former Heisman Trophy hopeful Matt Barkley fell all the way to the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round.
Bray left Tennessee following a record-breaking 2012 season that included 3,612 passing yards and 34 touchdowns against 12 interceptions with a 59.6 completion percentage. However, he appeared timid during his media session at the Scouting Combine. Failing to distinguish himself from the second-tier quarterback class, Bray was subject to a significant fall come the draft, and that's exactly what transpired. - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange
04/29/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: TOP 10 UNDRAFTED UNDERCLASSMEN: 1. QB Tyler Bray, Tennessee (6-6, 232, 5.05)...The most surprising undrafted prospect, underclassman or not, was the former Tennessee passer. He has top-shelf arm talent and can make all the throws necessary at the NFL level with ease, but the off-field concerns and shortcomings above the shoulders were likely too much to overlook for pro teams. Bray is an example of a prospect who has all the physical tools imaginable, but the below-average intangibles likely took him off the board entirely for most teams. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/28/13 - 2013 Tennessee Pro Day: All 32 NFL teams sent representatives to Wednesday’s pro day at the University of Tennessee, where wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and quarterback Tyler Bray were the big attractions. Bray, the 6-6 3/8, 229-pound QB has a big arm, really spins the ball well, but needs to work on his accuracy. Thirteen Tennessee players, plus one each from Tennessee-Martin and Tennessee Tech, participated in the workout, which was held indoors on FieldTurf. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
