Tim Tebow Leaves Broncos Practice With Possible Rib Injury

The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away.

Three days after he scored a touchdown in his debut with the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow missed practice Wednesday due to what some are calling a possible rib injury.

According to the Denver Post:

Tebow was holding his left side as he walked off the practice field Wednesday. The injury does not appear to be serious _ Tebow participated in two practices Tuesday, although he was wearing a flak jacket in the afternoon practice. He did not join the team in the post-workout conditioning sprints.

Tebow was out for the start of practice Wednesday, but about 15 minutes in counseled with head trainer Steve "Greek' Antonopulos, then headed for the locker room.

Over at NFL Fanhouse, they mention that it was that touchdown run that probably led to the injury:

He took a hard hit in Sunday night's preseason game at Cincinnati, when he ran through two Bengals defenders en route to a 7-yard touchdown run on the final play. Tebow may have suffered an injury to his rib cage area when he took a double-barreled hit in the midsection from linebacker Abdul Hodge and safety Kyries Hebert.

Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels told reporters after practice that he still expects Tebow to play in Saturday's exhibition against the Detroit.  SB Nation Denver will have more updates as this develops.
