Jets sit McElroy; Tim Tebow active against Titans

Tim Tebow is active as the backup quarterback for the New York

Jets, with Greg McElroy inactive for Monday night’s game against

the Tennessee Titans.

Tebow did not play in two recent games and was inactive for a

third as he recovered from two broken ribs. The Jets also

deactivated injured tight end Dustin Keller and receiver Stephen

Hill, who did not travel with the team to Nashville.

New York sat linebacker Bryan Thomas with a strained pectoral

muscle and cornerback Aaron Berry with an injured hamstring.

Jeff Cumberland will start for Keller, Chaz Schilens for Hill

and Garrett McIntyre for Thomas.

The Titans already had declared linebacker Colin McCarthy out

for a third straight game as he recovers from a concussion.

Tennessee receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) also was

inactive.
