DENVER (AP) - The odds of rookie quarterback Tim Tebow appearing in Sunday's primetime game against Pittsburgh appear dim, based on coach Josh McDaniels' comments.
McDaniels said Thursday that Tebow is "still pretty sore" and isn't yet able to do certain things effectively. But McDaniels also said "we've got a few more days here before the game."
Tebow has been nursing sore ribs since getting struck on the side on the final play of the Aug. 15 preseason opener in Cincinnati.
If he does indeed sit out against the Steelers, Denver fans will be denied a chance to see the first-round draft pick play this summer at Invesco Field at Mile High, given that the preseason finale is in Minnesota on Sept. 2.
Tebow did practice both Wednesday and Thursday.
