Tebow has rib injury, may not play

Thanksgiving night may be Tebow-free.

When the Jets turn in their inactives for Thursday night’s game, quarterback Tim Tebow may be on the list.

He’s questionable with a rib injury.  A league source tells PFT that his availability will be determined at game time.

If he dresses, he still may not play.

The game, by the way, will be televised on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET.

    This kid has played through so many injuries, broken noses where his eyes were swollen…good grief. The NY Coddlers. Sent Gabbert there, Gene.

    then the backup QB will be McElroy, who is definitely a better QB than Tebow… cause anybody is better than him….

    good news for Jets fans

    I didn’t really need anything more to add to my “I’m Thankful For” list. But I’ll take it.

    The media will still give him at least 20 minutes of coverage during the game even though he isn’t doing anything….as usual.

    In other news, the Pats 5th string QB is out with a right wrist injury… Bummer.

    What’s next?

    A pair of wrist injuries? Lacerations on his forehead?

    He’s a non factor anyhow.

    While I’m a dolphins fan and don’t have much to be thankful for from a football perspective today, at least the two most overrated and overhyped teams in the NFL will be exposed today – the Cowboys and Jets….

    Don’t you have to play to get injured?

  15. jetsarestacked says: Nov 22, 2012 7:53 PM

    who exactly overrated the jets this year? silly flipper fan.

  16. keepounding1234 says: Nov 22, 2012 7:55 PM

    The game starts at 8:20.

    Tebow got jinxed by Skip saying he was going to beat the Pats on thanksgiving before the season started hahaha

  18. edithpiaf51 says: Nov 22, 2012 8:20 PM

    The Jets hardly ever play Tebow so does this news really make a difference? The Jets are just a marketing product, nothing more. No substance, all marketing. (I am a marketing professor). The Jets team make for a good case study for my marketing students, but add nothing to the NFL.

    How do you get a rib injury on the bench?

  20. davidcl77 says: Nov 22, 2012 8:39 PM

    This means he will play.

  21. lostsok says: Nov 22, 2012 9:15 PM

    He doesn’t have an injury.

    He was making a girlfriend.

  22. willowy2k says: Nov 22, 2012 9:22 PM

    Hurry! Put tebow in cuz sanchez sucks

  23. cuda1234 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:59 PM

    Actually the Jets’ personal punt protector has given up three blocks this year, which has to be some kind of a record.

    I think he got benched from that job, too.

  24. edwinmoses says: Nov 22, 2012 11:06 PM

    I’m sure it has nothing to do w/ the fact we all knew the Jets would get destroyed and there would be people calling for Tebow by half.
