Notebook: Cam Robinson cleared to play

first_imgTUSCALOOSA – During his weekly radio show on Thursday, Alabama coach Nick Saban announced that left tackle Cam Robinson has been cleared by the team’s medical staff to play at LSU on Saturday.Robinson, a true freshman, is just two weeks removed from a high ankle sprain.“Doc gave him an examination yesterday after practice and cleared him to play in the game,” Saban said. “He practiced the whole time today (Thursday).”Saban didn’t mention whether Robinson would get the start or not. The West Monroe, Louisiana, native has started every game this season.Saban did however note that right tackle Austin Shepherd has done a good job filling in at left tackle and also praised sophomore Grant Hill for the job he’s done at right tackle.Robinson, who went down against Tennessee, was originally expected to miss a couple of games. But his performance this week in practice has put him on the fast track to play against his home-state school.“I do think Cam has a lot better chance of playing in this game than we originally thought he would,” Saban said.State native Alexander on LSU’s side: One of the in-state recruits Saban wanted and got away will clash with the Crimson Tide on Saturday night.Junior outside linebacker Kwon Alexander from Oxford has been making an impact for LSU. He’s the team’s leading tacker with 57, 27 of them solo and five for a loss of yardage.He’s an aggressive hitter who forced two fumbles and hurried the quarterback five times in eight games.“We thought he was a really good player,” Saban said. “He’s certainly playing well for them and is an outstanding person and a good player. We would have loved to have in him in our program. I think we were certainly right about that based on his performance, which has been very, very positive for them.”Alexander is in his second year as a starter and was regularly used backup as a freshman. He was a Rivals.com four-star recruit, considered the No. 11 prospect out of the state of Alabama.There are two other players from Alabama on the LSU roster. They are senior tight ends Logan Stokes of Muscle Shoals and fullback Connor Neighbors from Huntsville.Stokes is the backup tight end and has one catch this season. Neighbors became the starter in the middle of last season but hasn’t carried the ball this season.Running back depth: Starting running back T.J. Yeldon is expected to play Saturday, Saban said, after a foot injury against Tennessee. Alabama, however, is scrambling to build depth at the once deep position due to injury.“I think it’s important that our other running backs play well down the stretch here, too,” Saban said. “They’ve all played fairly well all year long. We want T.J. to continue to be able to have the same kind of production that he’s had. He’s been a very effective player for us run and pass. He’s a good pass protector, so hopefully all these guys will be able to be productive.”The other main ball carrier, Derrick Henry, has had his moments. He averages 66.2 yards a game and has scored four touchdowns.Reserves Altee Tenpenny and Tyren Jones hope to be used more. Fullback Jalston Fowler is also being worked in at tailback some to be ready.“Got to get in shape, that’s the main thing,” Fowler said. “There’s a lot of running. Got to learn both spots, fullback and running back, just pretty much make another transition again. It’s exciting anytime you get to run the ball when you’ve been blocking so much. I’ve been looking forward to it. Some games I’ve been wanting to beg for it, but I don’t want to be a pest.”Dealing with noise: Veteran Alabama players are trying to reinforce the coaches’ message about non-verbal communication this week as the Crimson Tide prepares for a trip to LSU.Tiger Stadium is a loud venue, so Alabama has practiced with crowd noise the last two days like usual headed into an away game.“My teammates told me it’s very intense, loud,” receiver DeAndrew White said. “We handled (road games) very good. We’re playing more and more on the road, and we’re getting very used to it.”Does the simulated noise really prepare them for the real thing?“The simulation it isn’t far away,” White said. “But at the same time, it’s not like the real thing. In practice, we try to simulate the real thing and sometimes you can’t really hear each other because of the speakers and stuff like that. It helps out a lot.”last_img read more
