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.
