The 6-foot-7, 324-pound Womack is expected to undergo surgery Wednesday. He's been through four spring practices here already.

In the absence of Womack, sophomore Jedrick Wills is expected to work with the starting unit on the offensive line. We met after this season and I said, 'Look, you've been through plenty of spring practices.

Holcombe would be entering his redshirt senior season with the football team this fall. He made a team-high 11 tackles on special teams, while finishing the season with 38 total tackles. He also had three passes defended and one fumble recovered.

"He's totally focusing on baseball, which I'm good with", Saban said. His second reaction came after being asked about receiver Devonta Smith practicing at defensive back. He started three games because of injuries to former linebackers Shaun Dion Hamilton and Rashaan Evans. It was reported multiple times that Jones would be some sort of analyst and would not be an on-field coach, but Saban's answer to a question about Jones during a media availability today caught some attention.
