Alabama RB Brian Robinson Jr. (hamstring) playing in SEC title game despite hamstring injury

ATLANTA -- Alabama running back Brian Robinson Jr., who suffered a pulled hamstring last week in the Auburn game, started Saturday's SEC championship game against Georgia.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said on Friday that Robinson would be a game-time decision. Robinson warmed up with his Crimson Tide teammates and appeared to be moving well before entering the game on the Tide's first offensive series of the game.

Robinson, a redshirt senior, leads Alabama with 1,016 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Robinson suffered his injury in the fourth quarter last Saturday against Auburn and did not return to the game. Sophomore Trey Sanders is Alabama's only other healthy scholarship running back.
