TUSCALOOSA — With all they’ve accomplished and as much as they have been dissected the past three, four or five seasons, Alabama’s departing players unveiled a few surprises at the Crimson Tide’s Pro Day.
All-American linebacker Rolando McClain revealed he has Crohn’s Disease.
McClain’s disclosure came as he explained his apparent exhaustion after Cincinnati Bengals coach Jeff Fitzgerald worked out the certain first-round draft pick and teammates Eryk Anders and Cory Reamer.
And All-American nose tackle Terrence Cody checked in under 350 pounds. Cody was criticized after weighing in at the Senior Bowl in January at 370 pounds. Many scouts and NFL watchers questioned his commitment.
Cody showed up at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis at 354 pounds. Wednesday, we weighed 348.
