Saban said he was unsure of Sheffield's status at this point but was hoping to get him back on the field. The former five-star recruit has not been spotted at practice since Saturday's scrimmage in Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"We're happy to have him back," Saban said. "He's a fine young man. He's worked hard and he's made a lot of improvement here. We enjoy having him as part of the team if that's what he chooses and we will continue to work with him in a positive way."
