Videos: QB Tim Tebow shows improvement at Eagles open practice

Quarterback Tim Tebow struggled early during the Eagles' practice open to fans at Lincoln Financial Field Sunday, throwing passes too low and high during warm ups. But as practice went on, Tebow's throwing showed improvement, and his throws were more accurate.

Tebow struggled throwing passes to receivers on air, but performed better during practice settings resembling game situations (11-on-11 and 7-on-7 drills). At one point he got into the secondary on a read-option run. Later he connected on an intermediate pass in tight coverage.

Tebow looked, as usual, most comfortable when running.

It helped, of course, that defenders are not allowed to touch QBs during practice.

Overall, Sunday was not a bad showing for Tebow.

Tebow ran with Philly's third-team offense. The Eagles will take on the Colts in Week 1 of preseason play on Sunday, Aug. 16 on CBS. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
