Does he play or does he sit it out?
It is the question that fans of Alabama football want to know about Jaylen Waddle. He has not played since Oct. 24, 2020 against Tennessee, but he was cleared to practice this week. His teammates were amazed by how good he looked on Wednesday and per Nick Saban, the junior at wide receiver has an opportunity to play in the College Football Playoff national title game.
A native of Houston, Texas, Waddle wants to be back on the field versus Ohio State next week.
Coach Saban stated that Waddle will be a ‘game-time’ decision on Monday. Before his right ankle injury, he recorded 25 receptions for 557 yards with four touchdowns. He totaled 100-plus yards receiving in the Crimson Tide’s first four games — Missouri, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Georgia — prior suffering a mishap on the opening kickoff against the Volunteers.
On Wednesday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed the explosive receiver via In My Own Words.
Hopefully, we will get to see Waddle suit up and get in on the action.
