BOSTON -- Freshman Chase Rettig is on track to return as starting quarterback when Boston College plays No. 14 Florida State Saturday.

Rettig said Wednesday that he's ready to play. He said he took all the snaps he needed at Tuesday's practice and his ankle feels good.

Rettig was named the started for the Oct. 2 game against Notre Dame, but he sprained his left ankle in the second quarter. Mike Marscovetra relieved him, but he was ineffective and BC went back to starter Dave Shinskie for last week's game against North Carolina State.

Shinskie has been ruled out with a concussion. Freshman Josh Bordner has moved up from the scout team to No. 3 on the depth chart.

The Eagles have lost three straight games for the first time since 1998.
