Tim Tebow is "Ok" according to a text sent to CBSSports.com by his father late Saturday.

Bob Tebow texted, "He is OK," after repeated requests about his son's condition. Tebow was taken to a local hospital after being hit Saturday night during a 41-7 victory at Kentucky. Earlier a source told CBSSports.com that Tebow as "laughing and joking" and should be OK after showing concussion-like symptoms.

Tim Tebow was being held overnight for observation. Further reports stated that a CT scan showed no bleeding on the brain and that Tebow had suffered what was termed "a bad concussion."

Coach Urban Meyer intimated after the game that his star had a concussion after being hit by defensive end Taylor Wyndham. The back of Tebow's head then bounded off a teammate's knee. Tebow was seen on camera vomiting into a bag while being taken off the field, possibly a sign of a concussion.

It is known that after after an initial concussion, victims are more susceptible to concussions thereafter. Tebow has been one of the most resilient players in the country. In the last two games alone, Tebow has carried a combined 40 times.

The concern now is for Tebow's future. He, along with three teammates, flew late to Lexington because was what was described as a respiratory condition. Tebow didn't play like he was sick accounting for 226 yards in total offense before leaving.

Tebow will not have to be ready until Oct. 10 when Florida travels to LSU. The Gators have a bye week on Oct. 3.

And you need to shove your head back up your a$$, where it obviously stays most of the time. I said nothing bad a bout Tebow, just the media worship of him. Kill myself? Sounds like you're the one who should ease up on the haterade.

Easy there big fella on the whole religion thing. Especially on who you say were great men. Greatness, especially in areas of Christianity, cannot be judged by the zealots you mentioned. Those men are some of the very problem with religion. All were fanatical. And doubtful you would like them if they were living today. Unless of course you enjoy fear mongering and murder. Then that would make you a fan of the Glenn Beck's of the world and then there is truly no hope for you.

I hope he is ok, but I don't see what all the hype is about this guy.  He is a fine college QB, and a fine student and citizen, but that's it.  He is NOT the greatest player in history, and should not be in the conversation.  If he is out, I don't see Florida taking that much of a dip.  I'm sure the backup is as good if not a better passer.

I mean no ill will towards the guy.  I just think he's over-rated.  His speach last season after the loss to Ole Miss was inspiring, and great media.  He exemplifies a student athlete like no other in recent memory, but he's still just a good QB.

How can you be great and christian at the same time?  Great men don't hate people because a book, that has been proven false again and again, says.

You are just about as ignorant as they come. Great men like Thomas Aquinas, Thomas More, Charlemagne and Dante were all chrisitians. There are countless others including many of our founding fathers who were at the very least deists.

It amazes me the ignorance of atheists when it comes to history. They point out the flaws, but are unable to see through those flaws the greatness. In Catholicism( and in Christianity in general), you are taught not only about God and the religion, but about forgiveness, love and aiding the poor. Many bash the church for their sins, but how many credit them for housing, comforting and feeding the poor?

Many Christians have railed against the Church's administration. You have the Scholastics who saved Greco-Roman learning by lobbying the concept that logic and reason can be integrated into Church teachings by studying the Aristotle's and Plato's. You have Dante who writes the masterpiece the Divine Comedy. Questioning everything is part of a good Christians upbringing, but faith will perservere.

The true haters are people like you whose have no faith in anything and look to tear down accomplishments of the past due to their bitterness and ignorance. You don't question, but condemn. That is the ultimate in hatefulness.

Tim Tebow practices what he preaches. He is a quality athelte, but a better person. He gives of himself and looks to help others. Any religion which has that as it core and has people follow those tenets is okay with me. It's not just in Chrisitanity, but in Judaism and Islam. Buddhism also has many of those tenets.

As for the book being false. Who is to say what is false? It may not be a primary source, but it weaves the history of the Jewish people and tells the world about one of the greatest prophets and human beings of all-time who preached love, compassion and a personal relationship with God. To me that's one hellava book to read and discuss.

I don't know the Bills players name, but the one who had that serious spinal injury was all anyone talked about for a long time about how he was recovering.That guy (Kevin Everett, by the way) was freakin' PARALYZED.  A little different from a concussion.

Your comment has no relevance to this post.  The kids religious beliefs are none of your concern of business if you have an issue with them than take it SOMEWHERE ELSE...this is a SPORTS message board not a place for you to spread your beliefs.  I"m not a Tebow fan or a Florida fan, but I'll tell you this the Sports and the World in general could use more HUMAN BEINGS, like him.  As state I AM NOT a TEBOW fan or one of those in the media worshiping him, but take your opinion on his beliefs and moral character elsewhere.....

Yes Virginia...there is a Santa Claus; and yes NFLfan5....you are an idiot.

You call yourself a FAN...but have you ever PLAYED the game?  I doubt you know how to run a post pattern or know what 'Sam' or 'Will' means.  How about an offensive play normally run to counter an aggressvie pass rush?  I doubt you've even played flag football on a Saturday afternoon.

Even for those whom have never played even a down in a high school game, a TRUE football 'FAN' appreciates the game and respects the corresponding violence.  Not you.  I appreciate and embraced the violence when I played years ago...as do those I am close with now playing high school and D-III college football.  A good hard hit?  Yes.  Injury?  I do not wish any sort of injury on any opponent.  Ever.

We may be 'treated to another good concussion?'  Allow me to add MORON to your vernacular.
