Tebow cleared to play tonight against Louisiana State, report says

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- A person familiar with the decision says Tim Tebow has been medically cleared to play against No. 4 LSU.

Florida coach Urban Meyer said earlier Saturday that the quarterback would play if he received clearance from doctors. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement had yet to be made.

Two weeks after suffering a concussion against Kentucky, Tebow's status for what figured to be top-ranked Florida's toughest regular-season test was uncertain.

The senior has never missed a game in his four-year career.
