Tebow focused on upgrading play, not worried about roster status

Struggling on the field this preseason, New England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow isn't spending his time worrying abotu his roster status.

The Patriots and other NFL teams get down to 75 players next Tuesday and 53 players later next week.

And Tebow has completed just 5 of 19 passes for 54 yards through two preseason games, including going 1 for 7 for minus-1 yard against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

"Just worried about improving every single day and having fun out there at practice," Tebow told reporters. "You definitely want to do better in some areas, and also you have different things happen that you just try to handle the best way you can."

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has identified signs of progress in Tebow, though.

"Oh yeah, definitely," Belichick said. "I think if you look at the entire week last week, it would look different than the game did. In some cases, the game looked better for some players, and in some cases the game didn't look as good as some other things during the week. So we'll just have to take all that into consideration."
