Villanova quarterback John Robertson has passed all the concussion tests to this point, according to a school official.

He is on track to play on Saturday and the team will likely know for sure after practice Thursday.

Robertson suffered his injury in Saturday's win over James Madison.

Villanova (7-3 overall, 5-2 Colonial Athletic Association) visits Delaware Saturday in the regular season finale.

The Wildcats are one game behind CAA leader New Hampshire and likely need a win to earn a Football Championship Subdivision berth. James Madison, Richmond and Towson are also 5-2 in the CAA.

Old Dominion is 6-1 but ineligible for the conference title because it is leaving the conference after this year. ODU will likely earn a playoff berth.
