Tebow shows progress on second day of practices

By  | 

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Quarterback Tim Tebow showed progress on his
second day of Senior Bowl practices even though he might have been
"a little under the weather."

South team coach Tony Sparano of the Miami Dolphins says the
former Florida star was a little more comfortable and got the ball
out of his hand quicker on Tuesday. Sparano says that improvement
shows how smart Tebow is and how quickly he processes information.

Senior Bowl spokesman Kevin McDermond said Tebow "might be a
little under the weather," but added that he doesn't have strep
throat as had been reported. Tebow hasn't missed any practice time
Monday or Tuesday.

Tebow is trying to show NFL teams that he can be a pro
quarterback during the week of practices, interviews and meetings
leading up to Saturday's game.
