Broncos Vs. Cardinals: Tim Tebow, Brady Quinn Waiting For Game Assignments

While Denver Broncos quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Brady Quinn are likely to appear on the first regular season depth chart as co-No. 2 quarterbacks behind Kyle Orton, the question for Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals is which one will start the game.

Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post believes head coach John Fox will sit Kyle Orton for this final preseason game and most if his starters, something he did previously in Carolina. If that happens Brady Quinn is likely to start the game, but that doesn't mean he'll play much either. Tebow still needs experience on the playing field, and he'd get that by playing at least half of the game.

Undrafted rookie free agent signing Adam Weber will also benefit from this game since he will see his first game action on Thursday night. He doesn't have much of a chance to make the roster because there's no reason for the Broncos to carry four quarterbacks. However, he would be a good candidate for the practice squad and a long-term development project.

Here is some key info for tonight's game:
