    I edited mine out. If those who replied with a quote could do the same I think we'll be ok.

    I have had three broken metatarsals in the last 4 years (stress fractures) and in fact toured the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza for hours on a broken foot. If an old man like me can handle it I'm sure a big young man like Barrett can as well.

    I know it hurts something awful but he has shown that he can tough it out. Still always better to be 100% when possible.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    At this point, assuming Lacy and Yeldon are good to go, I'd rather have another good receiver. We're a little short there.

    Did they have a 2012 calendar hanging up anywhere there? Did you sneak a peek to let me know if I should plan anything for Saturday?

    Can you suit up on Jan 7th if Barrett can't go, JPT4?

    Hmm..."Fluker Stomp" sounds like a great band name, or perhaps a new dance song... heh.

    Barrett will have PLENTY of time to heal by the 7th since the crack occurred on OR BEFORE the SECCG. Kids his age can heal bones so fast if they're not displaced.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    There's an article on ESPN now confirming that it's a sprained foot, not a break.

    ESPN


    Interesting tidbit...

    Jones wasn't the only Alabama player nursing injuries during the Tide's first day of bowl practice on Tuesday. Starting nose guard Jesse Williams wore a black no-contact jersey and former starting wide receiver Kenny Bell, who broke his leg against Western Carolina, did the same. Saban said Bell has been cleared to play but his availability against Notre Dame is undetermined.
    I may have missed that in one of the other threads. Cleared to play? Wow.
