T.J. YELDON RUMORS & GOSSIP
As the start of spring practice for Alabama approaches, we'll continue to breakdown each position. Today, we take a look at the Crimson Tide's stable of running backs.
Departed: Alvin Kamara (transfer), Dee Hart
Ready for spring: T.J. Yeldon, rising junior; Kenyan Drake, junior; Derrick Henry, sophomore; Altee Tenpenny, sophomore; Tyren Jones, redshirt freshman.
T.J. Yeldon is a man of many yards and few words, which so far has suited third-ranked Alabama quite well.
After this Thursday night's Sugar Bowl against No. 11 Oklahoma, though, some of the program's leaders, namely quarterback AJ McCarron, will be leaving school. Then Yeldon, whether he wants to or not, is expected to become the face of the Crimson Tide.

T.J. Yeldon has been trying to prove some kind of point all day. It started when, after a touchdown run in the first half of Alabama's 49-42 win at Texas A&M on Saturday, Yeldon mimmicked Manziel's "money fingers" gesture and then did a double throat slash move.
The throat slash, of course, has been flagged as a personal foul practically every time it has happened...

The play obviously got him a 15-yard personal foul, which I’m sure Nick Saban was thrilled about. Alabama has taken control of the game after Texas A&M jumped out to an early lead.
