Injury Updates on Tim Tebow and Braylon Edwards

Wanted to give you a couple of quick updates coming from Rex Ryan’s morning press conference.

Rex Ryan addressed the issue that was brought up yesterday regarding Braylon Edwards. If you haven’t heard by now, coach Carroll intimated that Braylon was released because he had a hamstring injury that was going to keep him out of the final 3 games of the season. Today, coach Ryan refuted that scenario, saying that Braylon Edwards passed his physical and was cleared to practice. Although he will be limited today because of the hamstring, Rex is hopeful that Braylon will be ready to go on Monday night. Interesting series of facts, and we will see how they play out as the week progresses.

His statements on Tim Tebow are interesting. Rex stated, and reiterated, that whether Greg McElroy is active or not, Tim Tebow is improving and will be active as the number 2 quarterback. However, he will NOT be the personal punt protector, or run Wildcat plays due to his health. What a contradictory answer? I think he is trying to tell us that they are giving up the Wildcat because it is no longer effective. He won’t say that, though.
