A few hours before the college football playoff national championship game between Alabama and Ohio, the main problem was related to Alabama’s injured star receiver Jaylen Waddell.
Will he play?
This is what we knew earlier this afternoon: According to sources, Waddle may make the final decision in the game against Ohio State University until the warm-up before the game. After the warm-up before the game, Waddle, his family and Alabama will meet and finally decide whether he will participate in the game.
If he does end the game, it will greatly promote the already vibrant Crimson Tide offense.
Before breaking his ankle against Tennessee on October 24, Waddle, who returned to practice last week, had 557 yards of 25 catches and 4 touchdowns in Alabama’s first four games. .
Update (5:30 PM CT): Alabama coach Nick Saban and Waddle told ESPN about the tide plan. Saban said: “I think if he can play, we will use him on a limited basis.”
