PORT ST. LUCIE —Tim Tebow, who didn’t miss a game at Florida while playing quarterback for the Gators and winning the 2007 Heisman Trophy, is out with an ankle sprain after running over a sprinkler head on a practice field.

He’s expected to resume full workouts in a few days.

New Mets manager Mickey Callaway says his team took precautionary steps before this current rash of bumps and bruises cropped up.

Starting right fielder Jay Bruce is day-to-day with a bout of plantar fasciitis, though he may be back in the lineup at designated hitter on Tuesday. Center fielder Juan Lagares, who will likely share time with left-handed Brandon Nimmo, has been held out with a minor left hamstring strain.

Young first baseman Dominic Smith, who overslept and was scratched from New York’s lineup Friday due to tardiness, is down with a strained right quad. His hustle on Saturday going from first to third on Jose Reyes’ ball that eventually turned into a ground-rule double cost him.
