New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the New England Patriots. Tebow fully participated in practice on Wednesday with sore ribs, but was still listed as questionable. Six additional Jets were limited at practice on Wednesday and are also listed as questionable. Linebacker Bart Scott (toe), wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (hamstring, heel), cornerback Aaron Berry (quadriceps), running back Joe McKnight (ankle), defensive tackle Sione Pouha (back), and defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (knee) were all limited on Wednesday.
Tebow has played in every game for the Jets, although in a minor role. In last week's victory against the Rams, he completed one pass for a loss of one yard and ran twice for a loss of five yards. McKnight and Ellis returned to the Jets lineup against the Rams after missing at least one previous game.
Eleven Jets were listed as probable for Thursday's game. Quarterback Mark Sanchez (back), wide receiver Stephen Hill (ankle), running back Bilal Powell (shoulder), center Nick Mangold (thumb), safety LaRon Landry (heel), linebacker Calvin Pace (shoulder), wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder), tight end Jeff Cumberland (wrist), guard Brandon Moore (hip, foot), guard Matt Slauson (knee), and defensive tackle Mike DeVito (finger) all fully participated in Wednesday's practice.
