Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t the only quarterback who has a rib problem. Though the other guy’s rib injury didn’t keep him from fully participating in practice, he won’t be starting on Sunday, either.
That’s because the other guy is Tim Tebow, who has a rib injury but who likely will be available for whatever it is that the Jets want him to do. Which typically isn’t much.
Absent from practice were running back Bilal Powell (concussion) and receiver Stephen Hill (illness). Running back Joe McKnight (ankle), linebacker Bart Scott (toe), and defensive lineman Sione Pouha (back, ankle) participated on a limited basis.
A total of 14 players fully participated despite injuries.
For the Rams, only three players showed up on the report; all were limited in practice. Amazingly, receiver Danny Amendola has completed exited the injury report, six weeks after having a potentially serious collarbone injury.
