Orton demoted to second string

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - It's Tim Tebow time for the remainder of the season whether Kyle Orton likes the situation or not.

Orton said he was informed by the Denver Broncos that the rookie will start not only Sunday against Houston, but in the season finale the following week when San Diego visits Invesco Field.

Even with his bruised ribs almost healed, Orton, who was in the midst of his most prolific passing season, will watch Tebow just like everyone else.

Orton was unhappy over the decision that leaves his future with the organization quite hazy, especially with a new front office coming in after a dismal season that cost Josh McDaniels his job.
