Can I use a USB Tether from my phone to my Apple TV to provide a intenet connection?

I have a droid razor phone with Verizion wireless mobile data plan. With the use of a App called PDA Net I used to be able to make my phone a mobile hot spot to connect to the internet with my Apple TV. My carrier ( Verizion ) has now blocked this feature. So I would like to be able to connect my phone with a USB Tether through a App. called PDA Net. If I activate the USB Tether on my phone can I connect it to the ethernet connection on the Apple TV device to connect to the internet ?
