Tebow named Broncos starter

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Coach John Fox said Tuesday that the Denver Broncos will start Tim Tebow against the Miami Dolphins when they return from their bye week.

Tebow supplants Kyle Orton, who has struggled ever since winning the job with a spectacular training camp.

Replacing Orton at halftime Sunday, Tebow nearly led the Broncos back from a late 16-point deficit, falling a desperation pass short in a 29-24 loss to San Diego.

Tebow had his troubles - rust, three fumbled snaps and six misfires in 10 pass attempts - but he ran for a touchdown and threw for another while energizing the Broncos and fans frustrated by a franchise mired in mediocrity since its last winning season in
2005.
