Tim Tebow is bracing for the cold

December 24, 2011 |  7:50 am


It sounds strange that a Denver Broncos quarterback wouldn't be used to cold-weather games, but Florida-grown Tim Tebow doesn't have much experience when the mercury dips.

Tebow gets the start today in Buffalo, where the morning temperature was 26 degrees with snow flurries expected later in the day.

To this point, Tebow's coldest game was in the low 40s, when the Broncos played host to the Chargers in last season's finale.

"I've never worn sleeves, but I've been wearing sleeves in practice this week to try to get used to that," Tebow told the Denver Post. "I won't wear a glove, maybe on my right [non-throwing] hand, but not on my [left] hand. I don't plan to, anyway."

Broncos Coach John Fox said he is unconcerned about Tebow making adjustments for the weather.

"He's practiced out here for almost two years now, so I think he's had his share of inclement weather," Fox told the Post. "I don't foresee that being a problem."
