Both Carpenter and Johnson returned to practice yesterday. Guess who else participated in practice.... Dont'a Hightower and Damion Square.

That's awesome. I didn't think he would come back for this season.

Dont'a won't play in the bowl game, no way. I bet he was wearing the black no-contact jersey.

It's good to know he is doing a lot better, though!

Good then the pants crapping taking place at UT can resume its previous pace.

Not only Hightower, but Square too. They're both key players on the defense

Neither will be be playing in the bowl game. You simply do not recover from reconstructive knee surgery that fast. They are participating in light non-contact drills because their rehab has proceeded to the point that they can; but they will be providing only moral support to the team.

As others have said, Square and Hightower won't actually play in the bowl game, but the fact that they are practicing with the team now is not only is a terrific sign that their recoveries are going well...It's also great for them individually to at least feel as if they are taking part in preparing for the National Championship with the rest of their teammates. They deserve it. I think both will be household names for this Crimson Tide defense in the next two or three years.

Actually, I do not want them to play. Let them get completely well. No need to rush it. We are okay. But won't it be GREAT when they DO get well? :D

Will they be ready to go in the spring?

Looks like they're well ahead schedule to be ready for Spring drills, which is great news.

      Agreed. Even knowing how it played out it's still interesting to read an article that sums it up so well. We see programs fall hard in short time frames all the time(though ours' is probably a pretty extreme example), and most people from the outside of the programs wonder how it happens so fast. Truth be told these are almost always "perfect storm brewing" scenarios that outsiders don't see until the tornado touches down.

      I agree.  I don't trust him to represent us at all.  He's more worried about seeing if he actually can do it. He kept promoting his investments and properties.   Middle class America doesn't care.  Meanwhile Hillary is too busy trying to con the minority vote and bleeding heart liberals into voting for her.   Who the hell is actually paying attention the middle class white America?

      Which is what we must get back to. States handle social issues. Fed handles trade, fiscal issues, and diplomacy. Unfortunately the fed has failed at those the last 3 decades. We've killed our economy through bad trade deals, high taxes/bad tax code, and war.
