INDIANAPOLIS -- J.T. Barrett has been medically cleared to play in Saturday's B1G Championship Game just six days after arthroscopic knee surgery.

"He's just one of the toughest human beings I've ever come across in my career," Head Coach Urban Meyer said of Barrett. "So much of it has to do with how he does during the course of the week. And the trainers and doctors are very involved. Some game-time decisions will be made."

Barrett injured his knee before taking the field against Michigan last Saturday. He left the game in the third quarter after re-aggravating the injured knee and did not return.

"I've had a player do it before, that was scoped earlier in the week and played," Meyer said. "And then I've had others that can't. And the body has to react a certain way. And his has been very positive."

The Buckeyes take on the Wisconsin Badgers Saturday at 8:17 p.m. on FOX 45.
