Tebow appears on injury report with ribs

Tim Tebow AP

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.

    Probably just hit his ribs with that huge, goofy wind up to throw either an INT, or into the dirt.

    I’m guessing it was Sanchez who attempted to stab Tebow in the back but missed and hit his ribs.

    Jets are bluffing. tebow starts.

    No honest person (including the Jets in that locker room) can tell me the offense would have performed any worse this season if Tebow had been starting all along. You are in denial if you think Sanchez actually gives them a better chance to win.

    Why in the world did they trade for him?

    If anyone can answer this with something that makes a lick of sense wins a prize to be named later…….

    It would be worse if he appeared on the injury report without ribs

    Sanchez is the worst QB in the league

    Hmmm…….a rib injury, huh……maybe next week “Eve” Tebow will pop up somewhere?

    How do you hurt your ribs when you never play?

    Well, not throwing has kinda worked for him so far, I guess.

    It’s just another excuse by the Jets for not playing him. He wouldn’t be any better than Sanchez, but at least he’d be a change, and perhaps the “Tebow is an NFL-caliber quarterback” talk would be put to rest.

    Does this mean he won’t be able to allow yet another punt block this weekend?

  15. goat2060 says: Nov 14, 2012 8:39 PM

    Was he out creating man again?

  16. cameltoehoe says: Nov 14, 2012 9:41 PM

    I’d most def go down on him, but sometimes when I see him that he seriously needs to learn how to moisturize. His face is very ashey. Oh we’ll, as long as he keeps his ass cheeks well lubricated!

    He is such a great guy, he took one of his own ribs and it to Big Ben.

    Or one of his “teammates” broke them trying to rip his heart out.

  18. bullethead527 says: Nov 14, 2012 10:22 PM

    Rib injury or broken heart?

    I say Tebow’s heart is broken, after his own team mates blasted him about him sucking…

  19. rcali says: Nov 14, 2012 10:28 PM

    Interesting. I thought he would end up on the injury report from a backstabbing wound.

    “Rex Ryan appears on injury report with pizza.”

    Don’t delete it this time.

    I believe the NY Jets are up to something. I believe the owner of the Jets,Johnson,knows. He himself said that Sanchez is the starter. They’re keeping the wildcat under cover. They don’t want NE to know what they’re doing. The Jets will win over the Rams,and use the wildcat against NE, and beat them. The NE will come up with a defense against the Jets wildcat, if they knew what the Jets were doing.

    This Sunday the Jets will win a victory.

    Maybe Sanchez could fake a concussion next time he gets sacked. This gives the team a “legit” reason to play Tebow for a game or two…. either it works and they leave him in, or it doesn’t.

    Yeah, the Jets have been sandbagging all year to beat the Pats. It is all part of the master plan.

    Trading for Tebow makes sense if Revis doesn’t go down with an ACL, the defense dominated like they have in the past, and Shonn Greene finally lived up to his potential. Then they would have at least had some of the ingredients that made Tebow so effective in Denver in place. You have something that grabs headlines to start the season, something to push Sanchez to achieve, and someone to come in and deliver a spark if Sanchez tanks. As it stands, I don’t think even plugging in [your favorite elite QB here] makes that a winning team. There are so many more issues than Sanchez that no QB would be successful, let alone a Personal Punt Protector at the position.
