Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn has denied that he's being prepared differently in practice this week, but Mike Florio continues to assert that the Broncos are getting Quinn ready to do "something" in this week's matchup against the Steelers.
Now, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Broncos have installed specific packages for Quinn premised on second-and-long and third-and-long situations.
Whether and to what extent Quinn actually plays remains unknown.
Obviously, it sounds like the Broncos are prepping Quinn to do some, you know, passing, which makes sense if you've ever seen Tim Tebow try to throw the ball.
Florio's report remains very controversial, with the Denver Post, for example, writing that, according to "three Broncos team sources," Quinn's practice routine hasn't changed at all, and Tebow is unambiguously the starting quarterback.
Quinn has never appeared in a regular-season game with the Broncos. He last appeared as a starter with the Browns in 2009.
