Clemson's National Championship showdown with Alabama is in just two days, but the Tigers are still not sure if they'll have their best defensive player available. Defensive end Shaq Lawson, one of the nation's best linemen, was injured during Clemson's win over Oklahoma. He has practiced on a limited basis, and maintained earlier this week that he will be good to go on Monday, but today, he says there is a 60-percent chance that he suits up against the Crimson Tide.

60-percent doesn't seem to translate to "very good," but who knows exactly how Lawson is feeling. We have to imagine that if there's any way he can suit up, he'll be out there.
