Johnson added the caveat that Marshall will return to his No. 1 role as long as he is healthy.
“I have no reason to believe he can’t (practice) because he was released, but we’ll sort it out,” Johnson said. “They’ll probably both play.”
Johnson was asked if he might consider playing both quarterbacks in a manner similar to how he shared playing time between Tevin Washington and Vad Lee in the latter portion of the 2012 season, when Washington played the first two series, Lee the next two with their performance determining playing time for the remainder of the game.
“I don’t know that we’re there,” Johnson said. “They’re both going to play.”
In Tech’s first seven games, Marshall started with Oliver coming in in some capacity in six of them, either in relief of Marshall in games that were lopsided or to sub for him due to injury.
