Cooper and Lacy warm up for Alabama
By Edward Aschoff
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It looks like Alabama will have two of its top offensive weapons against Texas A&M.
Wide receiver Amari Cooper and running back Eddie Lacy both suffered ankle injuries in the Crimson Tide's win over LSU last week, but both warmed up with their teammates before Saturday's game.
Neither seemed to be bothered too much during warmups, and early this week, coach Nick Saban said he expected to have both to be ready to play this weekend. Having Cooper on the field probably means more to the Tide, as he's quarterback AJ McCarron's top option at receiver right now.
Alabama also honored a handful of living Tide All-Americans before the game. This place erupted when those former players took the field, but it was nothing like when the Tide ran out onto the field. Things are getting exciting in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
