Brady Quinn Flies To Be With Girlfriend Alicia Sacramone, Noted Gymnast

While the Denver Broncos debate whether Tim Tebow or Kyle Orton will be the team's starting quarterback in two weeks against the Miami Dolphins, Brady Quinn still remains as the unseen player on the roster. He clearly isn't the backup despite being listed as the co-No. 2 quarterback with Tebow. He's just a warm body on the team, though I think John Fox should think hard about having Quinn as the true backup.

But all that's beside the point for this Monday afternoon. In case you aren't in the know, and I wasn't until this afternoon, Quinn took a flight to be at the hospital for his girlfriend's surgery to fix a torn Achilles tendon. His girlfriend? American gymnast Alicia Sacramone.

Best boyfriend award goes to @BQ9 for taking the red eye from Denver to be here for my surgery today...just another reason why I love him

If you don't recall Sacramone from the 2008 Beijing Olympics (Nastia Lukin did receive much of the press from there), you might have picked up the latest issue of ESPN The Mag with its Body issue. She has several pictures in the magazine, which you can certainly find around the Internet.

Sacramone tore her Achilles while in Japan. Her status for the 2012 London Summer Olympics is unknown.
