Former Packers third-round pick Abdul Hodge has finally achieved a measure of fame after four nondescript years in the NFL.
It appears Hodge, now with the Bengals, gave Tim Tebow his first NFL injury.
Tebow skipped sprints before both Broncos practice sessions on Wednesday. After consulting with the team trainer before the afternoon practice, Tebow left for the locker room and didn’t return. (Maybe he was busy signing autographs for Cincinnati media members.)
The Denver Post notes that Tebow has worn a flak jacket at practice this week, and they believe they pin-pointed the play in which Tebow was hurt. (Hodge slammed Tebow, who bounced off Bengals safety Kyries Hebert.)
The injury doesn’t appear too serious, but Tebow only has until Saturday to recover before the next Broncos preseason game. Commence magical healing powers jokes . . . now!
