It’s big time news in Denver. Glance up at the evening news and you’ll see it. Walk by a sports bar, and you’ll hear about it. Tim Tebow will be the Broncos starting quarterback again this Sunday against Houston.
The decision was made by Eric Studesville early in the week so that the team could have a full week of practice knowing exactly who their QB would be.
“We felt that Tim played well yesterday, ran our offense effectively, and compounding that was the fact that Kyle [Orton] is still rehabbing,” Studesville said. “We felt like prolonging this later into the week wasn’t the best thing for our preparation and practice, so we decided to make the decision early in the week to go ahead and do this.”
It was unknown if Kyle Orton would be able to go later this week. He’s nursing some sore ribs and receiving plenty of treatment. He was scheduled to make an appearance at a FedEx Pack and Ship with the Pros event tomorrow, but had to cancel in order to spend more time in the Broncos’ training room. (Side note: Brandon Lloyd will be replacing Orton at the event)
With just two games left, it pretty obvious that the Broncos are leaning on Tebow’s broad shoulders. It appears that he’s the future QB for this team, and Orton’s roster status for next year remains a mystery.
