Tyler Tettleton, the Ohio Bobcats’ highly touted starting quarterback, said he will play against UMass this weekend.
The news comes from Jason Arkley, a sportswriter for the Athens Messenger. He broke the news on Twitter:
On to serious matters: Solich said he’s questionable but QB Tyler Tettleton said he’ll play at UMass. He’s “100 percent” sure of it in fact

There was some question as to Tettleton’s status entering this weekend. He suffered an undisclosed injury and missed the Bobcats’ last game against Norfolk State. In fact, even during this week’s MAC conference call, head coach Frank Solich was unsure whether his best offensive weapon would see the field.
Tettleton is a big-time playmaker and will surely test UMass’ secondary. However, Derrius Vick, a redshirt freshman, has been a quality backup.
