Rex Ryan expects backup QB Tim Tebow will be 'ready to go' for Jets vs. Cards

Rex Ryan anticipates Tim Tebow will be "ready to go" in the New York Jets' next game against the Arizona Cardinals in spite of the backup quarterback's two broken ribs.

The Jets coach said Monday that the team will see how Tebow does during the week.

Tebow was in uniform but didn't play Thursday night in the Jets' 49-19 loss to the New England Patriots, with Ryan saying he could have played but would have been used only in an emergency. Tebow revealed after the game that he was injured two weeks ago at Seattle.

Initial X-rays after that game were negative, and Tebow played three snaps at St. Louis last week. When the pain worsened early last week, Tebow underwent an MRI exam and CT scan, which revealed the fractures.
