“He didn’t look exactly right at the beginning of the day,” Jets quarterback Tim Tebow said, via McManus. “So it wasn’t long when we heard he went to the trainers and we heard what happened.”
McElroy was faced with a tough decision to make as this Sunday’s game against the Bills could’ve been the last opportunity he had to start in the NFL. He ultimately did the smart thing for his long-term health by telling the coaching staff what he was experiencing.
Greg McElroy reportedly experienced headaches while lifting weights on Thursday, so Ryan decided to hold him out of this week’s game as a precautionary measure. McElroy was diagnosed with a concussion on Thursday.
Ryan added that; “Obviously Tim [Tebow]’s not happy with that.”
Just in case you thought the drama was finally over in regards to the Jets’ quarterback position, Sanchez gets another opportunity start in the final game of the season. Ryan must feel that it’s almost impossible to have Tebow prepared to play against Buffalo or he’s just worried that things could actually get worse if Tebow were to start. This could end up being Sanchez’s final start for the Jets, but his contract would suggest that he’ll at least be back as a backup next season.
