Former Florida quarterback John Brantley III, the father of current Gators backup John Brantley IV, told The Miami Herald on Thursday morning that the school's coaches and medical staff likely will not know Tim Tebow's playing status until ``the middle of next week.''
``They have to be honest with it,'' Brantley III said. ``They really don't know right now.''
Tebow, UF's All-American quarterback, must be asymptomatic for a week before he is allowed to practice. Tebow suffered a significant concussion Saturday during the third quarter of UF's 41-7 win against Kentucky. Tebow wasn't allowed to watch television or read until Thursday, according to Florida coach Urban Meyer.
Brantley III, who lives in Ocala, is driving to Gainesville on Thursday afternoon to watch practice. Meyer will not address reporters Thursday and there isn't a press conference scheduled until Monday.
