Broncos' Tebow ponders long sleeves as chilly Buffalo beckons

A season of firsts will continue for Tim Tebow on Saturday when he's likely to play in the coldest weather of his career.

These things can happen when a late-December road game in Buffalo is on your schedule. The temperature at kickoff is supposed to be in the high-30s, practically balmy for western New York but still a lower reading than the Broncos quarterback has played at on any level.

"I've never worn sleeves, but I've been wearing sleeves in practice this week to try to get used to that," Tebow said Thursday, according to The Denver Post. "I won't wear a glove, maybe on my right hand, but not on my (left) hand. I don't plan to, anyway."

Tebow's coldest game was 42 degrees at kickoff for last year's season finale against the Chargers in Denver.

"He's practiced out here for almost two years now, so I think he's had his share of inclement weather," Broncos coach John Fox said. "I don't foresee that being a problem."

Tebow seems to operate best when there are obstacles in front of him. Considering the odds he's overcome in multiple instances this season, it's highly unlikely he'll be felled by a chill in the air at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
