TIM TEBOW UPDATE: Looked 'terrific' on Tuesday night

GAINESVILLE -- Florida coach Urban Meyer addressed quarterback Tim Tebow's status on Wednesday morning during the weekly Southeastern Conference coaches' teleconference:

"I've turned this over to our medical staff," Meyer said. "And every day -- because I don't know and I don't want to mislead anyone or say something that's not right -- so every day, because I do the same thing, 'What's new with Tim?' it's day to day and there is nothing earth shattering. They're continuing to monitor. Last night I saw him around 9 and he looked terrific. That's the best I've seen him look. Yesterday during the day he looked OK. He looked good. So it's day to day with him. I've yet to see him today."

Meyer will speak to reporters around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Meyer said during the teleconference that back-up cornerback Moses Jenkins of Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson, who also had a concussion on Saturday, is receiving the same care as Tebow.

Offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas has a bruised elbow and bicep. Mike and Maurkice Pouncey are also slightly injured (Mike's ankle; Maurkice's shoulder) but should be fine by next week.

--The flu continues to spread through the team. On Monday, cornerback Markihe Anderson and safety Will Hill were sick. On Tuesday scout-team quarterback Andrew Blaylock and reserve defensive end Kedric Johnson had a fever.

"The good thing is we're going to go Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and then Friday, Saturday, Sunday they're off," Meyer said. "And they're back Monday morning read to go, so we're hoping that kind of wipes it out."
