Another week brings another minor mystery regarding ULM's starting quarterback.
ULM coach Charlie Weatherbie said last week that Trey Revell's broken thumb was mending and he was on pace to play at Troy. But Revell remained sidelined and Cody Wells made his second straight start in ULM's 42-21 loss to Troy.
"We were going to put him in, but didn't feel comfortable at the time," Weatherbie said during Monday's Sun Belt Conference media call. "And so, we kept him out."
Now with a trip to North Texas fast approaching on Saturday, Weatherbie is again sending mixed signals about Revell's return.
"He's throwing the ball well and doing the things he needs to do," Weatherbie said.
"Last week, I thought he had a good week of practice and did some really good things. We felt like Cody at the time was doing some very good things as well. So, we kept Cody in the game."
Wells, who threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions against Troy, hurt his left wrist in the contest.
"We're getting that x-rayed today," Weatherbie said. "We x-rayed in on game day and they said it was fine. It was a sprained left wrist. But I think he'll be fine. He practiced last night."
In his first season as ULM's starting quarterback, Revell led the Warhawks to a 3-0 start in the Sun Belt Conference. For the year, Revell has completed 81-of-140 passes for 1,124 yards and eight touchdowns with five interceptions.
So, will Revell -- who suffered the fractured thumb in ULM's 16-10 win over Arkansas State on Oct. 13 -- return to the field against North Texas?
"He'll be ready to play," Weatherbie said. "He's in a position to play."And will Revell start?
"That will be another game-time decision," Weatherbie said.
