    Re: Any update on Jalston Fowler?

    I just noticed that Coach Saban have never quite said that he's out for the season, but keep saying " likely will be out for the season" IT sounds like he may come back in time final few games? I"m not sure?

    Barrett Jones. That man can play any position that requries blocking. That would leave us with a bit of a void at center, but no time to worry about that now.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    AFAIK, ruptured/damaged PCL and a damaged MCL. The PCL surgery has a 70%+ success rate, if it's single ligament (i.e., ACL not involved and MCL and LCL not damaged beyond self-healing with trimming).

    Even if he is eligible, they can not apply until the season is over. That is because any participation in the second half of a season constitutes a year of eligibility used.

    You don't apply for that in advance. You apply to have a year of eligibility restored. I forget the number of quarters played which is the limit, but it's something like in the 20-25% range, so, if he wants to play an extra year (i.e., not NFL-ready), he'd be almost certain to have the year restored. In rare cases, in cases of double injuries, two years have been restored. I know some kid from OU had two years restored several years ago...

    Not by quarters but by games. Any participation in a game counts as a complete game. Rule says you can not have participated in MORE THAN 20% of the scheduled games in the first half of the season. Post season counts in the total games so Bama's number would be 14. 20% of 14 is 2.8. Any fractional number is rounded up, so his number would be 3. Rules says MORE THAN. 3 IS 20% of the games, so 4 would be MORE THAN 20% of the games.
