    The man said he'll play, then he'll play.

    So either you're lying, or Barrett is... hmm...

    ...and maybe he will. He's a gladiator. But I hear he's not even close.....yet. We'll see.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    Dude, why would I be lying? He's a kid, of course he says he's going to play. Its not the middle of the 3rd quarter with the trainers asking him how it feels. Not his call if he cant physically do the job. I hope he plays, I want Barrett to play in his last game, but not to the extent he is a liability to the team or affects his NFL future when his heir apparent, Ryan Kelly is game ready.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    We'll know next week. If he isn't practicing then, the likelihood he participates is very small. Unsubstantiated rumors aren't going to last long here either.

    Point well taken. It's not like I have been around this board very long. Roll Tide.

    I'm watching the SECCG. Although Barrett is playing on a hurt foot, he's moving well. Got out to block on a receiver screen(?) to Coop.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    I'll put it this way about "sources"

    My brother and I had sources telling us that Eddie Lacy was in non-contact after the meda left all week prior to the WCU game. I didn't expect him to participate due to concussion symptoms following that TAMU hit. He ended up getting 2-3 TDs in that week's game.

    Re: Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    I'd be really surprised if Barrett didn't play. This isn't like Bell, he didn't have to leave the game or even go rushing to the locker room after the game. Logically, it would seem it should only get better with treatment. So, unless there is some sort of regression in his condition he's extremely likely to play.

    Having said that, if he doesn't his backup has experience and plenty of time to practice. But, Barrett didn't have surgery, so it's hard to see why his performance could be below that of his previous game (which was certainly good enough).

    I think Barron with no arms was still better than the other options. He did to much to get everyone else where they belonged.

    Also can't see Barrett not playing if there is any possible way for him to be on the field. He has put in 5 long years with all he's had. Not seeing him get to play in his last game, for his 3rd National Championship, would be heart-breaking.

    exactly why would anyone on the internet site an anonymous source and lie about it, or if not lying site a source that is itself lying? people dont just do that, being the king of my own island in the pacific I know these things.

    While Barron was an incredible player, a player with arms would have at least knocked the ball down or wrapped up after the catch.

    Barrett Jones still on crutches and casted

    Part of me wishes Saban would put the entire OL in a cast and crutches for a day for all to see. Then watch everyone (espn and ND) go ballistic. Just imagine the storm that type of joke would stir.

    I think it would be hilarious. Kind of like when Belichik puts the whole Patriots roster on the injury report.
