    No but a 90 to 95% Bell might be. And that would mean another ring for Bell! Ring MY Bell!!!!

    Just got to say it. Wouldn`t it be great to see us trot out, a couple of times, a set with Coop and Bell flanked out on one side and Black on the other? Won`t happen I`m sure, but it`s fun to think about! Talk about a mad scramble in the ND secondary!

    IF we see Black (and that's a big "if"), I would think he would be second rotation for speed depth. Bell, OTOH, if healthy enough, would start opposite Coop...

    In the practice photos, Kenny is wearing a black jersey. Great that he's practicing, but if he's not cleared for contact in practice, would he still play? I guess it's possible...

    I have no inside information that you couldn't get if you ran into Kenny yourself. He didn't share with me any details as we talked.

    BUT.....he looked good on Wed. If I didn't know any better I would have no idea he broke his leg. That said, walking is a lot different than running and playing in a football game.

    Were you aware that there's frequently a jersey change after the media session ends? It's a game Saban has played for years...

    Kenny Bell closer to return

    If ND thinks they can play two safeties deep with Coop and Bell running deep routes, the running lanes should be open for Lacy and Yeldon.

    Re: Kenny Bell closer to return

    Did he break his ankle or leg? I broke my ankle in high school playing football and I would be amazed if he could come back in this short time. Not saying he can't but I sure couldn't have. If it were a bone in his leg I wouldn't have any idea...

    It was the fibula (non weight-bearing) bone. Best one to break, if one has to break one...

    Kenny Bell closer to return

    Has ND play anyone with this many weapons at one time? Maybe if they used their whole schedule.

    Accounting for Bell, if he plays, will be a daunting task.

    Thanks, it would obviously be huge if he could contribute in this game...

    As to your earlier comment about your ankle, if the fibula breaks down at the attachment to the ankle, then it is considered a type of ankle break, and there's usually associated ligament and/or tendon damage. Once again, I'd be surprised if this is the case with KB, or he wouldn't have had a chance of getting back this early. Like GA, I don't have any inside info...
