LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Tim Tebow had to be helped off the field
following a hard hit in the third quarter against Kentucky on
The Gators were in Kentucky territory when Tebow took a big hit
from Kentucky defensive end Taylor Wyndham. Tebow's head hit the
leg of Florida right tackle Marcus Gilbert as he fell to the
ground. He lay motionless for several minutes before sitting up. He
walked off the field with help to the bench, where his parents came
down from the stands to join him.
As Tebow was being carted from the sideline, the 2007 Heisman
Trophy winner appeared to be vomiting.
He was replaced by backup John Brantley on Florida's next possession.
Tebow had rushed for 123 yards and two scores and added another
103 yards passing and a touchdown before the injury. He started
despite having respiratory issues that force him and several
teammates to take a separate plane to Lexington on Friday.
