A couple of injury updates to pass along out of Denver.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Thursday that backup QB Tim Tebow, who practiced Wednesday for the first time in eight days after suffering a rib injury, will be evaluated the rest of the week to see if he can play Sunday against the Steelers.
“He’s still pretty sore,” McDaniels said, via the team’s Twitter acount.
According to The Denver Post, McDaniels said he expects to play the team’s starters into the third quarter.
Following the news that top draft pick Demaryius Thomas wasn’t likely to play in the season opener because of a re-aggravated foot injury, McDaniels offered up some good news by saying he didn’t expect the rookie receiver to be “out very long.”
That update, which followed The Post report that Thomas doesn’t have a stress fracture as originally feared, has to make Broncos fans breathe a little easier.
