Alabama continued its practice preparations today for Monday night’s national championship game against Clemson. The Crimson Tide were without a key contributor for at least part of the session.
Jacobs could have returned for the part of practice that isn’t open to the media, but there isn’t a way to confirm that as Nick Saban won’t speak to the media until Saturday.
More news on Jacobs’ absence could emerge before then though.

Jacobs has rushed for 593 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns this season. He ran for 98 yards and caught a receiving touchdown against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl last Saturday.
Again, there might not be any reason to worry about Jacobs yet. We’ll find out his status soon enough.
