If you tuned into the Turkey Day tilt between the Patriots and Jets, you might've noticed the conspicuous lack of playing time for Tim Tebow.
In fact, the highly-publicized backup quarterback played zero -- read 'em zero -- snaps in New York's 49-19 blowout loss to the Pats.
And now we know why.
After the game, Tebow revealed to reporters that he has two fractured ribs, and had to convince coach Rex Ryan to let him suit up.
According to Tebow, the injury occurred during an offensive -- and not special teams -- play against the Seahawks on Nov. 11.
But it wasn't the first time he sustained a rib injury.
Ryan added that Tebow's breathing "seemed different" this week, and didn't want to take any chances. Leading up to the game, he was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Rex Ryan is no stranger to his New York Jets being embarrassed at home by the New England Patriots. Last season, the Patriots traveled to New York and beat the Jets by a score of 37-16. Thursday’s loss was even uglier, as New England dominated in all phases of the game en route to a 49-19 Thanksgiving Day loss on national television.

'U R RIDICULOUS'
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller took to Twitter to call out Jets fans who apparently booed when it appeared that Mark Sanchez went down with an injury.
As we are only one day away from Thanksgiving, this story about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is a rather-heartwarming one.
According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, some random fan (or kissing-up teammate) sent Tebow the below bouquet of balloons back on Tuesday:

Chris Gross- Jets 24, New England 21: Tomorrow, the Jets will display the same mentality that they had last week in St. Louis, the mindset that their backs are against the wall and they need to swing from the hip to survive throughout the rest of the season.

There were no sighs of relief, no jumps for joy when the New York Jets found out they wouldn't have to worry about Rob Gronkowski this week.

''I don't know,'' Ryan said, shaking...
