Playing might not be in the Cards for Tebow

  • Print

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan expects Tim Tebow to be "ready to go" for the New York Jets' next game.

Whether the backup quarterback actually plays Sunday against Arizona is another matter.

Tebow is recovering from two broken ribs that kept him on the sideline last Thursday night in New York's 49-19 loss to New England. He was in uniform but didn't play, with Ryan saying he could have come in but would have been used only in an emergency. Tebow revealed after the game that he was injured two weeks ago at Seattle.

"I'm not expecting anything to change as far as his availability, but we'll see how the week goes, to see if there's any significant change or anything else," Ryan said Monday. "I know he was active for the game, but we'll see. I know he's getting treatment and things like that."

Initial X-rays after the game against the Seahawks were negative, and Tebow played three snaps at St. Louis last week. Ryan said the limited playing time was more a product of the Rams showing certain defensive looks than the injury. When the pain worsened early last week, Tebow underwent an MRI exam and CT scan, which revealed the fractures.

Tebow was listed as questionable for the game against the Patriots, but was made active -- instead of third-stringer Greg McElroy -- after speaking with Ryan and undergoing a pre-game evaluation. Tebow refused any pain-killing injections before the game.
