Tebow underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder to remove a bone spur and chronic inflammation related to an injury he sustained during the 2007 season that was aggravated earlier this season. "The surgery went well," said team physician Dr. Pete Indelicato. "He should be able to begin throwing in the next three to four weeks and a full recovery is expected." A year after becoming the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, Tim Tebow led Florida to its second national title and second Southeastern Conference Championship in three years.
Tebow completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,746 yards with 30
touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team in rushing for
the second-straight year, gaining 673 yards and scoring 12 times.
He was 18-of-30 passing for 231 yards, with two touchdowns in Thursday
night's 24-14 victory against Oklahoma in the FedEx Bowl Championship
Series title game at Dolphin Stadium. Tebow also ran for 109 yards,
including 85 yards in the second half, and was chosen as the game's
Offensive Most Valuable Player.
