MIAMI, Florida – Alabama starting center Barrett Jones, practiced this morning for the second time in two days.
He has an injured foot, and these two practices were his first since getting hurt in the SEC Championship Game a month ago.
After the Crimson Tide’s chartered flight touched down at Miami International Airport this afternoon, Jones walked off the plane wearing a black protective boot on his left foot. But Jones said he is fine.
“Feels good,” he said. “Ready to roll.”
When Alabama coach Nick Saban was asked how practice went for Jones and receiver Kenny Bell, who is recovering from surgery for a broken leg suffered Nov. 24, Saban said, “It went well. It went well.”
