Tim Tebow may have an expanded role when the New York Jets play the New England Patriots on Sunday, Coach Rex Ryan said Thursday.
The sound you just heard was a collective cheer from all the Mark Sanchez haters out there.
Unfortunately for those folks, Ryan is not replacing his starting quarterback (Sanchez) with his popular backup (Tebow).
That sound was a collective sigh from all the Sanchez haters.
Instead, Ryan said, Tebow could be used at running back to help take the place of injured backups Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell.
"That's a possibility," Ryan said. "The thing about Tim, with him being a football player like we've always talked about, by playing quarterback he knows all the positions. So can you plug him in at running back? Can you plug him in at tight end? I think the answer is yes."
