J.T. Barrett is probable for Saturday.

This past Saturday, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett reportedly injured his knee before kickoff against Michigan after being bumped by a cameraman. Barrett eventually exited the game - in the third quarter - after aggravating the injury.

Will Barrett play against Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game this Saturday? Urban Meyer was asked on Monday, and said that right now, Barrett is "probable" for the contest.

That's good news for Ohio State and its fans.

Ohio State and Wisconsin both need a win to be considered for the College Football Playoff. Barrett's presence on the field definitely gives the Buckeyes a better shot.
