FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Tim Tebow would be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets this season if Mark Sanchez was sidelined by injury.

Coach Rex Ryan says Wednesday that Tebow would "expand his role" for the Jets, rather than the team turning to a more conventional-style quarterback such as third-stringer Greg McElroy - which some fans and media have speculated might be the case.

Tebow is listed as the No. 2 quarterback, so it seems obvious that he would fill in. But the fact the Jets plan to use Tebow in specific packages raises questions over whether he would remain in that role if Sanchez were hurt.

"We feel good about what Tim can do," Ryan says, adding that he's also confident in McElroy, who'll start Thursday at Philadelphia.
