PASADENA, CA (WBRC) - Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain is expected to play Thursday, according to head coach Nick Saban.

Saban told reporters Wednesday morning McClain was feeling better after suffering Tuesday from a stomach bug.

"I know there were some concerns yesterday because I had a couple players who were sick," Saban said. "Those players are better today. Everybody will go through walk-through. If they continue to improve, they should be able to participate in the game."

McClain did not attend the team media day on Tuesday, but Saban said he participated a little bit in the afternoon practice.
