TIM TEBOW BACK TO ACTION WITH THE JETS
Mon, 17 Dec 2012 06:47 AM EST

Tim Tebow’s days of running the NY Jets’ wildcat-style offense appear over for now.

Rex Ryan recounted the backup QB, recovering from 2 broken ribs, will be, but will likely only play in the conventional offense if starter Mark Sanchez goes down with an injury. That means no wildcat or participating as the punt protector on special teams.

”I’d love to help this team in any way,” Tebow recounted. ”Whether that’s running, throwing (or) whatever I can do, however I can do it.”

Tebow has not played in the Jets’ last 3 games after being hurt November11 at Seattle.

”I think he’s improving,” Ryan said. ”Improving to where you are going to run the powers and the counters and all that other stuff? I’m not sure about that.”

Tebow has been medically cleared to play the last few weeks, but Ryan has chosen to keep him on the sideline rather than risk further injury. Tebow played 3 offensive snaps against St. Louis on Nov. 18, but the soreness in his ribs intensified after the game. X-rays revealed the fractures, but Tebow convinced Ryan he could play Thanksgiving night – after being cleared by team doctors – but never saw the field.

He was inactive against Arizona 2 weeks ago, with Greg McElroy serving as the backup to Sanchez – who he replaced in that game and led N.Y to a comeback victory. Ryan declared it’s possible 3rd-stringer McElroy may be active, but Tebow is still the No. 2 quarterback. Scores

”I feel happier about Tim in that role,” Ryan said. ”I feel he gives us the best opportunity.”

Ryan announced Tebow has not experienced any setbacks with his injury, and there’s no cartilage damage or further complications.

”I’m more comfortable with him playing now, clearly, than I used to be a few weeks ago,” Ryan declared. ”I feel better about him playing with the way he’s worked out on the practice field, we’ve increased his reps, and the day before the (Jaguars) game, he was throwing it pretty good.”

Tebow was expected to be a major part of the offense after being acquired from Denver in March, but he’s had little more than a minor role in N.Y. Ryan clarified his comments when, during a radio interview, he revealed he would think Tebow is disappointed with his situation with the Jets.

”As far as his particular role, the wildcat and all those type of things, we haven’t run it that much and obviously with the 2 broken ribs or cracked ribs, that’s something that’s got to be disappointing because you are not intending to do that,” Ryan announced. ”That’s how I feel. As a competitor, you want to win a large amount of games, w tont to win all of your games but we are 6-7, so I think that is disappointing for all of us. With his role, having the ribs these last couple of weeks, manifestly his role has been diminished some. I do not believe he’s happy about that.”
