Rex's Reversal: Tebow Might Run Wildcat For Jets

By  | 

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Tim Tebow might not be done in the wildcat after all.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan reversed his decision Friday, saying the backup quarterback could actually participate in the wildcat-style offense and on special teams as the personal punt protector at Tennessee on Monday night. On Thursday, Ryan said Tebow would be the backup to Mark Sanchez, but only in the conventional offense.

Ryan says Tebow "moved around great" in practice Thursday and looked the best he has in several weeks since breaking two ribs at Seattle on Nov. 11.

Of course, the sudden shift in thinking after one non-tackling practice could merely be an example of gamesmanship, trying to confuse the Titans. Tebow has not played in the last three games.
