And on the first day, Tim Tebow rushed two times for two yards.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said that Tebow may have played more snaps if the plays gained more yards, but in general he’s not planning to change his approach. Kyle Orton stayed on the field as a wide receiver in the snaps Tebow was in.
“I don’t think I have any desire to do that with Kyle coming off the field, coming on the field, coming off,” McDaniels said. “I don’t think that’s really something that we’re looking to do much of. Like I said yesterday after the game, I think our quarterback played pretty well.”
Orton did play very well until a late interception, averaging nearly nine yards-per-attempt. Orton says he’s fine with the Tebow usage.
By the sound of it, Orton can expect to stay behind center nearly every snap.
