Steelers Vs. Broncos: Conflicting Reports Discuss Brady Quinn's Role

Conflicting reports about the Broncos quarterback situation surfaced on Friday, painting Denver's AFC playoff game against the Steelers on Sunday with a degree of uncertainty.

Early on Friday afternoon, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported backup Brady Quinn has been splitting practice reps with starter Tim Tebow.

As Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports, however, Quinn says little has changed about his role in practice.

Quinn also told NFL.com -- both before and after an Internet report surfaced that he "has been getting roughly half the first-team reps in practice this week" -- that his repetitions have not changed at all this week.

Via text message, Quinn said he hasn't "gotten any extra reps" in practice. Quinn reiterated his stance during a follow-up conversation after the report from ProFootballTalk.com first surfaced Friday afternoon.

And so, it will be interesting to see how things play out at quarterback for the Broncos in this game. Tebow, for all the attention he's gotten this season, has had his share of troubles, but there's been little in Brady Quinn's career to suggest he's a lock to play well, either. Sunday will certainly tell the world more.
