ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Tim Tebow is expected to make a full
recovery, without surgery, from rib, lung and chest injuries he
sustained in the Denver Broncos’ loss at New England in an AFC
divisional playoff game last weekend. ESPN first reported Wednesday that Tebow got hurt on a third-quarter tackle during Denver’s 45-10 loss, then had trouble sleeping because of the pain and underwent an MRI on his chest
Monday. Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said that while he couldn’t confirm
the exact extent or nature of the injuries due to team policy, he
acknowledged that Tebow finished the game in considerable pain.
Backup Brady Quinn got ready after Tebow was hit by Vince
Wilfork and Rob Ninkovich, but Tebow stayed in.
The injuries aren’t expected to interfere with Tebow’s offseason
MIAMI (AP) – Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin
is having a second interview for the Miami Dolphins’ head-coaching
job. Philbin met Wednesday with team owner Stephen Ross and general
manager Jeff Ireland in New York City, where Ross has an office.
Also scheduled for second interviews there later this week are
Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and Todd Bowles,
the Dolphins’ interim coach for their final three games this
season. The three coaches are finalists for the job after Jeff Fisher
turned down the Dolphins on Friday to become head coach of the St.
Louis Rams. Philbin completed his first interview with Miami on Jan. 7. He
was away from the Packers much of last week following the death of
his son, who drowned in a Wisconsin river.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The Indianapolis Colts are looking for a new
head coach. Jim Caldwell was fired yesterday after watching the

without Peyton Manning. Three years ago, in his first season, the
Colts won their first 14 games of the season as they advanced to
the Super Bowl.
