Tebow Back Injury Update: Fine, Says Meyer

Yes, Tim Tebow was held out of "live" (contact) participation during practice this past week, because he has a lower back injury or strain or problem or don't-know-what-to-call-it.

Urban Meyer insisted that Tebow would be practicing full-go on Monday.

Meyer (per Volin): "He has not missed practice at all. He’s been held out of live situations against the defense mostly to get Johnny Brantley reps, and his lower back was a little sore. No disc issue, and he’s full speed Monday."

Follow-up: Any additional detail about the injury?

Meyer, again: "Before that creates a life of its own, he’s fine, 100 percent,” Meyer added. “We also held Spikes out of some live stuff. That’s what you do this time of year, so we’re good."

One more follow-up: Any reason this is only coming out now, in what seems like something Urban HAD to address, per the rumors?

I would love to see Urban take a page from his close friend Bill Belichick and how Belichick deals with Tom Brady's status each week: He is listed on the injury report every week, healthy or not.

Just to mess with people's minds. I suspect that Tebow -- and his Superman mentality -- would not appreciate being affiliated with weakness of any kind.

Then again, he might just gain even more motivation from it.
