Tebow Could Step In At RB For Short-Handed Jets

Rex Ryan says it’s “a possibility” do-it-all backup quarterback Tim Tebow could see time at running back for the  Jets on Sunday against the New England Patriots.

The Jets are a bit short-handed at the position with backups Joe McKnight (sprained left ankle) and Bilal Powell (separated right shoulder) likely out for the game. That leaves only starter Shonn Greene and rookie Jonathan Grimes, who has yet to play, as the team’s only running backs. Lex Hilliard is the remaining fullback after the Jets waived John Conner on Wednesday.

Tebow’s role has been limited in his first season with the Jets, but he has carried the ball 18 times for 64 yards. Ryan says Tebow’s “got power,” and as a quarterback, he “knows all the positions.”
