SOURCE: Garrett Greene Expected to Play Against TCU

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers will have their starting quarterback this weekend against the TCU Horned Frogs, according to a source. Garrett Greene, who was injured in the first quarter of the Backyard Brawl against Pitt, is expected to be available to play on Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas.

Greene fully participated during practice today and was a full-go during football activities, which means he is now officially cleared to get back on the field. In his stead over the last two games, Nicco Marchiol led the Mountaineers to victories over Pitt and Texas Tech. However, Marchiol only threw for 60 yards against Pitt and 78 yards last weekend against Texas Tech. In addition, Marchiol made a couple of really poor decisions and isn’t quite as effective as Greene is running the ball.

It’s unclear at this time whether Marchiol or Greene will get the start, but Greene is definitely expected to see snaps and could potentially be the starting quarterback when the Mountaineers take the field on Saturday.

The West Virginia versus TCU game is this Saturday, September 30, at 8:00PM eastern time and will be televised live on ESPN.
