A few new health updates on three key Alabama players came on Wednesday as the NFL Draft quickly approaches.

In a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Crimson Tide running back Najee Harris and wide receivers DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle all received positive responses on some of their lingering injuries from last season.

Harris received some good news on his ankle which brought up no concerns and should not affect his draft stock according to the report.

Smith, who dislocated his finger in the national championship game against Ohio State is healing just fine without any issues down the line.

Waddle, who suffered an ankle injury that sidelined him for most of the 2020 season, is healing properly and will still be viewed as one of the top receivers in the draft and is expected to be a first-round selection.
