GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has a broken right hand and will be in a cast for at least two weeks.
The Heisman Trophy hopeful sustained a non-displaced fracture in his non-throwing hand during his 5-yard touchdown run on the opening drive of the third quarter against Florida State, team spokesman Steve McClain said Sunday.
Team doctors looked at his hand and did some tests on the sideline, but Tebow said he was OK to play and stayed in the game.
X-rays following Florida's 45-12 victory revealed the severity of injury.
The Gators (9-3) probably will play in either the Capital One Bowl in Orlando or the Outback Bowl in Tampa on New Year's Day, and they expect Tebow to be back in time to play.
