    I think coach said Bell was cleared to "do some things" in practice but it was too soon to tell if he would be available for the game. The same holds true for Jarrick Williams.

    Interesting tidbit...

    The story also says Bell broke his leg against Western Carolina, so the reporter's accuracy is questionable at best.

    I think Scarborough may be a bit off in his characterization of Saban's comments. I think he was saying, or trying to say, that Bell had been cleared to participate in certain activities, but nothing more than that.

    I can't imagine a situation where Bell is somehow cleared to play, yet spends the entire practice session pedaling a stationary bike with one leg, as he did yesterday afternoon.

    The coach explained it pretty well. "Cleared to play" doesn't mean they'll be able to play. All depends on what they show in practice.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    I watched a video of the press conferences sometimes for reasons exactly like this...Saban clearly said he was "cleared to do some things" not "cleared for contact" or "ready to play."

    When Saban has said something similar to his statement on Bell it usually means the player can run a bit and possibly do some of the drills. Either way, I imagine it is still going to be close on whether Bell gets on the field in the championship. Jarrick Williams is really the only guy who Saban made any statement about being cleared to participate. Hart, White, and Fowler are out. Barrett Jones is on target for after Christmas. Kenny Bell is going down to the wire on his full recovery.

    I was hoping someone would take the hint. Yes, I'll be glad to.

    He's still non-contact jersey; no word if he's in the boot.

    I'd rather get him as close to 100% as possible rather than have him taking practice snaps when he's started for four years and does a good job of taking care of his body.
