Denzel Devall

Saban: Alabama getting healthy for SEC Championship


Watch out, Missouri. Alabama looks to be getting a little bit healthier for this weekend’s SEC Championship Game in Atlanta.

While meeting with the media Wednesday night, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said linebacker Denzel Devall is questionable for the SEC championship game, but a handful of others should be available. Left tackle Cam Robinson, wide receiver ArDarius Stewart, and tight end Brian Vogler all have been practicing this week and will be ready to play if called upon Saturday.

Robinson, a starter on the offensive line, had a high-ankle sprain in late October that kept him out of a few games for the Tide. Vogler and Stewart each suffered stretched knee ligaments, as it was reported leading up to last week’s Iron Bowl against Auburn.

“With all these guys, we’ll have to evaluate how they progress this week, how they respond to the activity that they’ve done,” Saban said, per “Some of them might even … we’ll have to decide before the game. But most of the time when guys practice … as long as they don’t have a setback, chances are they’ll be able to contribute in the game.”

Alabama is ranked on top of the latest College Football Playoff rankings. A win against Missouri would pretty much guarantee the Crimson Tide a spot in the four-team playoff. A loss could put Alabama in jeopardy of making the playoff. Having all hands on deck certainly would be a nice luxury with so much on the line.
