Broncos coach Fox: Tebow still a quarterback

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Broncos coach John Fox made it absolutely clear Monday that Tim Tebow's future lies in throwing passes, not catching them.

A day after using his backup quarterback as an emergency wide receiver, Fox reiterated: "He is a quarterback."

The Broncos entered the game Sunday against Cincinnati with only three healthy wideouts after Pro Bowler Brandon Lloyd was a late scratch due to a lingering groin injury.

And when Eddie Royal (groin) was hurt early in the game, the Broncos were down to just two receivers: Eric Decker, making his first career start, and Matt Willis, who has just one start in four
NFL seasons.

That forced Fox to use Tebow for a handful of plays out wide, especially since he knew the offense so well.
