As for Tebow, his bruised ribs appear to be improving.
"As soon as he can go out there and do what we'd like him to do, then he'll be out there," coach Josh McDaniels said of Tebow before practice.
For the second consecutive day, Tebow participated in a pre-practice walk-thru, but this time, he returned to the field with the rest of his teammates in full pads.
"At this point he's doing some things right now to see how sore he is," McDaniels said. "We'll see how it goes."
Tebow was injured in the preseason opener Aug. 15 at Cincinnati. Two days later, he left practice during warmups and has not been seen at a regular practice until today.
