Tebow Hurts Ribs on Touchdown Run vs Bengals

Tim Tebow didn’t leave Cincy without an injury, going over a defender for a touchdown on the last play of the game:

Rookie quarterback Tim Tebow’s first foray into an NFL end zone appears to have left him with injured ribs. Denver’s rookie quarterback missed his first practice of training camp on Wednesday after jogging off the field during warmups. While the Broncos aren’t saying what’s wrong with their first-round draft pick from Florida, Tebow might be feeling the effects of his game-ending 7-yard touchdown run in his pro debut Sunday night. After absorbing several hard hits, Tebow powered his way into the end zone on the game’s final play, smacking into Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Abdul Hodge to the goal line and bowling over Kyries Hebert, leaving the safety woozy with his mouth guard lying on the ground at his feet. Wearing flak jacket-like extra padding around his ribs this week, Tebow participated in both workouts Tuesday when the Broncos reconvened at Dove Valley but he skipped the post-practice wind sprints, where he routinely whoops his offensive teammates.
