Broncos rookie QB Tim Tebow missed practice Thursday, his second missed practice in a row, and he may not make his preseason home debut as expected Saturday night.
According to FOX31's Josina Anderson, Tebow has fractured ribs, but not entirely the result of the big hit he sustained as he scored a rushing touchdown on the last play of the Broncos' 33-24 loss at Cincinnati on Aug. 15.
Tebow practiced Tuesday, but left the field Wednesday during warmups and did not return.
The first-round draft pick was 8-for-13 passing for 105 yards and added two carries for 10 yards and the rushing score that saw him get drilled by Bengals LB Abdul Hodge as he fell into the endzone.
