After weeks of images from Ohio State football’s Twitter account that lacked a certain former Heisman Trophy finalist, the account finally tweeted out a photo of junior quarterback Justin Fields getting on the plane with the team, seemingly signifying that he will be active to play against Michigan State Saturday.
Ohio State will release its full status report Saturday morning that will show who all is unavailable for the game against the Spartans, though the report will not specify the reason for each player’s lack of availability.
Regardless, it now seems that Fields – who has thrown for 1,208 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions through four games – will not be mentioned and will be active for Michigan State.
