Rex: No reason to think Tebow won’t be available

Now that America has had time to grieve the loss of a celebrity fan, whose need for attention has to have now been met, we can move onto more pressing issues.

Namely, the celebrity backup quarterback.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said there’s no change in Tim Tebow’s status for Sunday, despite the fact he backed up Mark Sanchez last week with two cracked ribs.

“I’m not expecting anything to change as far as his availability, but we’ll see how the week goes and if there’s any significant changes,” Ryan said, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I know he was active for the game, so we’ll see. I know he’s getting treatment but I anticipate him being ready to go.”

Tebow was active but didn’t play in Thursday’s 49-19 drubbing at the hands of the Patriots, and somehow, the world continued to spin on its axis, and the Jets still lost.
