EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey -- His team took a thrashing at the hands of the New England Patriots last night - and New York Jet fans hollered for him to be put into the game.
But Tim Tebow was in no position to help - and not just because some teammates lack faith in him.
He says he has two broken ribs.
Tebow says he was hurt in the Jets' loss at Seattle two weeks ago.
He talked the coach into putting him on the active roster for last night's game, which the Jets lost 49-19. But he didn't play.
