Could Tebow Overtake Snaps from Quinn on Gameday?

In an interesting piece today in the Denver Post, they talk about how all 3 QB’s could be ready to go on gameday, and there’s a shot that #1 pick Tim Tebow could see snaps as the backup:

The Broncos could activate all three of their quarterbacks on game day on the 45-man roster but that’s almost unheard of, and the fear would be coming into a game too light in the offensive and defensive lines as well as on special teams, already a huge concern for coaches as they deal with the current 45-man rule. The Broncos could make Tim Tebow the No. 2 quarterback on game day to use him in their version of the wildcat formation whenever they wished. That would push Brady Quinn, who right now is solidly at No. 2 and for whom the Broncos traded, down to No. 3. The reasoning could be that if Quinn had to enter the game for the injured Orton before the fourth quarter, all it would do is prevent the Broncos from putting Tebow behind center. But how that would sit with a veteran player like Quinn remains to be seen, especially if he’s the No. 2 quarterback by merit.
