Tebow Time Coming, as Broncos Ready for Sunday’s Game vs Oakland

It is sounding more and more like Tim Tebow, by reasons of injury or not, is going to see more playing time this week when the Broncos take on the Raiders.

Tebow saw more snaps with the first team on Thursday as usual starter Kyle Orton continues to nurse a bruised elbow. Word is that Orton will start vs the Raiders, but Tebow won’t be far behind if Orton can’t go or struggles.

“It’s something that’s going to happen. It’s unfortunate that Kyle is banged up now. But Tebow playing is inevitable and so it’s better now than maybe the last game of the season,” wide out Brandon Lloyd said. “I think it will be good for him and be good to ease the fans’ minds. It will be good to ease all the players’ minds of how well he can play in game-time situations.”

Cornerback Champ Bailey seems to feel that the Broncos are ready to throw Tebow into the fire as well, but feels that he can handle the pressure.

“I think he can take on anything thrown at him,” Bailey said. “He’s a guy who’s seen a lot, especially through his college days. I think everybody is a little anxious to see what he does in the league.”
