The Denver Broncos made rookie Tim Tebow their No. 2 quarterback for Sunday's season opener at Jacksonville.
It's a homecoming for Tebow, who grew up in Jacksonville and played at Nease High School in suburban Ponte Vedra Beach and at the University of Florida.
It didn't take long for Tebow to see his first action of the regular season. On the Broncos' third play from scrimmage, he took a direct snap and ran for 1 yard.
The Broncos used Tebow in short-yardage and goal-line packages during the preseason, so he could see snaps in those situations Sunday. Tebow completed 64 percent of his passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason, but he also threw two interceptions.
