Photos: Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon Has His Leg Wrapped Up Heavily For Sugar Bowl vs. Ohio State

Alabama junior running back T.J. Yeldon will be a "pre-game decision" for tonight's contest against Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl, Nick Saban told reporters on Wednesday. 

The Crimson Tide (12-1) are currently in the Superdome warming up for their College Football Playoff semifinal contest against the Buckeyes (12-1). Yeldon, who is dealing with a hamstring injury, has been limited in practice this week. As the junior running back warms up for the game, his right ankle and calf are wrapped, with an elastic band going down the back of his leg.
