MOBILE, Ala. -- Tim Tebow says he has been battling strep throat leading up to the Senior Bowl.
The Herd with Colin Cowherd
NFL Live's Trey Wingo and Mark Schlereth talk about Tim Tebow's NFL future. His release is too slow. The guys also discuss the Pro Bowl and how great Kurt Warner's story is.
Tebow said after Wednesday's practice that he had been "kinda sick" since Saturday. The Florida quarterback hasn't missed any practice time with the illness in preparing for this weekend's game for senior NFL prospects.
He said he went to see doctors and still wasn't quite 100 percent at midweek. A Senior Bowl official had said a day earlier that Tebow was "a little under the weather" but didn't have strep.
Asked if he was fully recovered, Tebow joked with a reporter, "Not quite, you want to give me a hug?"
He said he is feeling more comfortable with the offense and taking snaps under center. He mostly lined up in the shotgun for the Gators.
