Alabama could have two key players back ahead of playoff game

This could definitely be good for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama fans were probably expecting to play Washington in the Peach Bowl without the help of a couple starters. Defensive back Marlon Humphrey suffered a hamstring injury before the SEC Championship Game, but did play in the game.

Ahead of the Peach Bowl, head coach Nick Saban updates his status as well as offensive tackle Cam Robinson's who has been dealing with some injuries over the course of the season.
