FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- When backup QB Tim Tebow was done speaking with reporters Wednesday, he went to the team cafeteria to grab a bite to eat -- shirtless. He didn't have a shirt big enough to cover the huge ice-wrap on his back, soothing two fractured ribs.
So it came as no surprise Thursday when Rex Ryan announced that Tebow will be limited in practice for the second straight day.
"He never did a whole lot (Wednesday)," Ryan said. "We'll see how he is (Thursday). We're just going to monitor the situation and see how he progresses during the week."
On Wednesday, Tebow took only one rep in practice, according to a source. Third-string QB Greg McElroy took more than his usual share, fueling speculation that he could dress Sunday against the Cards.
Ryan has said he expects Tebow to be cleared by the doctors, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to play. He dressed last week and didn't play, resulting in an avalanche of criticism of Ryan, who went into the game with only one healthy QB.
In other injury news, WR Clyde Gates (concussion) and CB Aaron Berry (quadriceps) aren't expected to practice. Gates won't play Sunday. WR Chaz Schilens (concussion) will be limited for the second straight day. On Wednesday, he said he was fine and expects to play. WR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring/heel/illness) will be limited, but will play.
