Tebow Could Play Two Quarters Against Cincinnati
CORTLAND, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Tim Tebow has finally had a good day at training camp, throwing two long touchdown passes as the New York Jets had their final on-field preparations for their preseason opener at Cincinnati.
Tebow has not been ripping it up in training camp, his biggest problem on the field is a lack of accuracy.
Coach Rex Ryan says quarterback Mark Sanchez and the rest of the starters will play “a quarter or so,” while Tebow could play about two quarters against the Bengals on Friday night.
Tebow received two snaps with the first-team offense during 11-on-11 drills, something he recalled doing earlier in camp, and hit Patrick Turner for a pretty 60-yard touchdown against the same type of defensive call on which he beat New York on a game-winning TD run last season in Denver. In 7-on-7 drills, Tebow lofted a nice 50-yard pass to Jeff Cumberland for a score.
