Rolando McClain #25, August 6, 2009

Posted Jan 6, 2010

Butkus award-winning Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain did not practice Tuesday due to what described as flu-like symptoms.

On Wednesday in Newport Beach at the BCS National Championship Game coaches' press conference, Nick Saban was asked about the status of Rolando McClain.

Asked "if there's much of anything that could keep McClain out of this game" Saban said, "Well, I don't know. We're not going to let him play unless the doctors say he can play."
