Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow’s rough passing performance in last week’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs created some internal discussion about whether to prepare backup Brady Quinn during practice for possible action Sunday against the Steelers but the team later backed off the idea, sources said Friday
Quinn also told NFL.com — both before and after an Internet report surfaced that he “has been getting roughly half the first-team reps in practice this week” — that his repetitions have not changed at all this week.
Via text message, Quinn said he hasn’t “gotten any extra reps” in practice. Quinn reiterated his stance during a follow-up conversation after the report from ProFootballTalk.com first surfaced Friday afternoon.
Quinn said he gets “maybe a couple of reps a day” with the first-team offense, adding that usually he gets one or two repetitions — “if any” — on Fridays. He said he got two repetitions with the unit Friday.
