Tim Tebow Injury: Broncos QB Would Have Been Unlikely To Play In AFC Title Game

We'll never know for certain after Tim Tebow's chest injuries during Saturday's Denver Broncos loss to the New England Patriots, but those afflictions would likely have kept the quarterback out for the AFC Championship Title game had the team won, reports the Denver Post.

The immediate effect of that would have been the installation of Brady Quinn as the starting quarterback. Brady, as we know, hasn't taken a snap in an NFL game outside of the preseason in over two years. The Broncos offense would also have shifted to a different playbook to accommodate the different style of play with Quinn under center. Now, Quinn enters free agency and a possible departure from the Broncos.

As for Tebow, though he was named an alternate for the 2012 Pro Bowl, he would be unlikely to participate in it if Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger or Philip Rivers had to drop out.
