The New York Jets are preparing for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they are right now unsure of who their starting quarterback will be. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow, who is still recovering from a rib injury, is not even being considered to start in his second return to Jacksonville, according to Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country:

Tim Tebow isn't really even being considered a possibility to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars, even if he was fully healthy. It's possible Tebow may not even be on the active game day roster for his second trip back to Jacksonville.

Jets head coach Rex Ryan is now deciding between Mark Sanchez, who has started all season, or backup quarterback Greg McElroy, who came into the game in relief of Sanchez and helped lead the Jets to a 7-6 victory against the Arizona Cardinals after completing 5-of-7 passing for 29 yards and a game-winning one-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland in the fourth quarter.

The Jaguars are scheduled to host the Jets at EverBank Field on Sunday with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. The game will be broadcast on CBS and will be on the radio on WOKV 690 AM and 106.5 FM.
