Tim Tebow practicing Tuesday and lifting weights Monday is a huge gain for the Gators. While he is not cleared by doctors for the LSU game, practicing will allow time for any possible symptoms to act up. Waiting for a headache or soreness or nothing at all, Tebow must be honest about his condition. To be cleared to practice, Tebow must have passed all of his measurable tests. But now he has to run in heat and read defenses, which are not measurable. The decision to play now lies with Tebow and Meyer and neither is guaranteed to approve, especially if this week at practice is rough. We will just have to wait.
Also, we probably won't know that Tebow is cleared until kickoff, because you know Urban will work that angle as long as he can.
