Broncos Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville announced today that Tim Tebow will start at quarterback for the Broncos this Sunday against the Houston Texans at Invesco Field.  Tebow made his first career start yesterday against the Raiders in a 39-23 loss.

The Broncos also announced a roster move when they were rewarded cornerback Chevis Jackson off waivers. He was waived by the New England Patriots on Dec. 18.  Also on Monday, the club waived rookie linebacker Kevin Alexander.

Jackson (5-foot-11, 193 pounds) is a third-year player who has appeared in 33 career regular-season games (3 starts) with Jacksonville (2010) and Atlanta (2008-09), totaling 64 tackles (55 solo), one sack (9 yds.) and one interception (95 yds.). He also started one postseason contest and recorded two solo tackles and an interception. He entered the NFL as a third-round draft choice (68th overall) by Atlanta in the 2008 NFL Draft from Louisiana State University.

He graduated from LSU ranked second in school history in passes defensed (44), while adding 142 tackles (103 solo) and eight interceptions.

 A two-way player at St. Paul's Episcopal High School in Mobile, Ala., Jackson was born on Dec. 11, 1985.
