                      === Tebow active in Jacksonville ===
 
 Jacksonville,  FL  (Sports Network) - If  Mark Sanchez struggles again for the
 New York Jets, it will not be Greg McElroy coming to the rescue as he did last
 week.
 
 McElroy  is listed as the third quarterback for the Jets and Tim Tebow will be
 the backup for Sunday's game in his hometown against the Jaguars.
 
 Sanchez  was pulled  for the  first  time in  his career  last Sunday  against
 Arizona and McElroy led the Jets to their lone touchdown in a 7-6 win.
 
 There  was much  speculation as to who  Rex Ryan would name as the starter for
 this  Sunday's  game and the  coach decided to  keep Sanchez in that position,
 although he indicated he was comfortable with any of his three quarterbacks.
 
 Tebow  was inactive last week because of a rib injury, giving McElroy a chance
 and  the Alabama  product took advantage. McElroy, though, will be back on the
 bench with Tebow active on Sunday and ready to give his hometown fans a thrill
 if Sanchez again is yanked.
 
 Ryan  did  say this week  that Tebow would  be the No.  2 quarterback if he is
 completely healthy.
 
 The Jets will be without tight end Dustin Keller, inactive because of an ankle
 injury.
