FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Rex Ryan said Friday that the Jets are ''looking into'' the availability of Tim Tebow, who could be inactive for the team's game Sunday against the Cardinals because of two broken ribs that have limited the backup quarterback the last few weeks.
Ryan said that the team has not made a final decision to not play him contrary to an ESPN report.
Tebow was injured at Seattle on Nov. 11, played three offensive snaps the following week at St. Louis and was active but didn't play last Thursday against New England.
Greg McElroy would be the backup to Mark Sanchez if Tebow can't play. Tebow said he didn't do much during practice all week due to throwing still bothering his ribs. Ryan was criticized last week for keeping Tebow active rather than McElroy.
