New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is not active for the team's game against the Arizona Cardinals because of a rib injury.

Tebow has two broken ribs, suffered at Seattle on Nov. 11, and was limited in practice all week. Third-stringer Greg McElroy is active for the first time in his NFL career and will back up starter Mark Sanchez. Tebow was active Thanksgiving night against New England, but did not play.

Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts is out with an ankle injury, while defensive end Calais Campbell is sidelined with a calf injury. Starting quarterback Kevin Kolb is out for the sixth consecutive game, as expected, with a rib injury. Rookie Ryan Lindley is starting for the second straight game.
