Brady Quinn worked exclusively with the No. 2 Broncos offense at Monday’s practice, all but completing a month-long process to pass Tim Tebow on the depth chart.
Quinn started as the No. 3 quarterback, split work with Tebow for a while, and now appears locked into the No. 2 spot. The Denver Post headline says Quinn is “now clearly” ahead of Tebow.
Tebow had a mixed performance on Saturday, and will get a chance to improve upon that this week.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post envisions Quinn playing a series or two on Thursday, with Tebow playing until Adam Weber finishes out the game. The Broncos may rest their starters entirely, like a lot of teams.
Even if Quinn is the backup, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Tebow hit the field in some goal-line packages during the regular season.
