Alabama could have a secret weapon to unleash against Georgia this weekend, as Nick Saban revealed running back Bo Scarbrough is healthy enough to make his return to the team. 

"Bo is ready to play," Saban said Monday. "He’s been practicing, he’s been cleared medically, his suspension is over and we’ll work hard to try to create a role for him. It may take some time to get him back in the groove of things, but that’s certainly the plan."

Scarbrough came to Tuscaloosa as a five-star prospect in 2014 and was rated as high as the No. 2 athlete in the country according to 247Sports.  

While Scarbrough may not be ready for a significant amount of touches early on, he must be accounted for on every play by the Georgia defense. In a game where points could very well be at a premium, one play could make all the difference in the final outcome of this game.
