Tim Tebow revealed after Thursday night's loss to the Patriots that he has two fractured ribs.
Tebow put in full practices this week, but head coach Rex Ryan said that Tebow's ribs had gotten progressively worse over the past couple of days. It makes sense as to why he didn't play a single snap in Thanksgiving night's rout. Tebow wasn't even being used in his normal punt protector role. He has been on the injury for the past couple of weeks but hasn't missed any sessions. The gimmick quarterback should be fine in a couple of weeks, but it begs the question of why the team even dressed Tebow against New England.
They dressed Tebow so people would watch the game instead of an undressed Tebow on the sidelines.
