08:45 AM ET 12.01 | Tim Tebow barely has had an effect on the Jets' offense all season long, but this week he'll likely manage to be even more of a nonfactor. A source told the Daily News it was highly doubtful that Tebow, recovering from fractured ribs, would be active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Though likely, Tebow's deactivation has not been finalized. Tebow fractured his ribs against the Seahawks in Week 10, then played sparingly against the Rams before sitting out the embarrassing Thanksgiving night loss to the Patriots while active. Despite reports that Tebow won't suit up, Rex Ryan refused to rule out the possibility he would be available. Tebow is officially listed as questionable.

Timmy's status is clear....riding the pine. Rexy just needed a quick media fix.

What's uncertain about cracked ribs?

Why not cut Tebow and then maybe he could hook on to a team in the CFL.

LOL, that is true!!!! IMO Tebow will never be a good player in the NFL. How bad Sanchez is, at least he can throw the ball.

He doesn't know his status? Maybe he should ask Jesus Christ?

He can? Don't try to convince Jets fans.

Reminds me of OJ's low speed chase

Tebow has been highly doubtful since he was drafted.

As much as I am in favor of the Jets comedy, I think Ryan needs to get beat upside the head. Either play Tebow or cut him. He can't do worse than Sanchez.

The Jets could end this whole train wreck by playing Tebow for the rest of the year, explaining to Sanchez why and then letting him flail in front of all the Jets fans and the rest of the sports world. It would then be over..for good.

There would be that bennifit also

2nd Tebow thread of the morning? Rex Ryan must think McElroy is awful if he won't suit him up to be the backup.

If McElroy gets to play and it turns out he does a better job than Sanchez, that makes Fat Boy look pretty foolish, doesn't it?
