CFB: Alabama LB McClain misses media day with stomach ache


Associated Press

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Alabama's All-America linebacker Rolando McClain and backup defensive back Rod Woodson missed media day for the BCS championship game Tuesday morning because of a stomach virus.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban described the pair as being "under the weather."

Saban says the team's medical staff would decide whether the players would practice Tuesday afternoon. He said they have been given medicine.

He's hoping the bug will pass within 24 hours and both players will be available when No. 1 Alabama plays second-ranked Texas for the championship on Thursday night.
