The Sunday outing for Tim Tebow was good enough for the Broncos first-round pick to earn another start. Interim coach Eric Studesville said Monday he’s decided to start Tebow again when the 3-10 Broncos play host the Houston Texans Sunday.
Studesville said Kyle Orton is still bothered by bruised ribs and that Tebow did a good job managing the game plan in his first NFL start Sunday at Oakland despite Denver’s 39-23 loss to the Raiders.
Asked if team owner Pat Bowlen might have suggested the move to ensure there isn’t a sea of empty seats at Invesco Field on Sunday, Studesville said he indeed met with the owner and chief operating officer Joe Ellis in the morning but that it was his decision alone. He says Bowlen and Ellis agreed with his call.
