SENIOR BOWL: Alabama quarterback Mac Jones injured his left ankle in a practice and said he wasn’t sure of his status for the game.

Jones didn’t finish the practice, the final one before the game Saturday. The Heisman Trophy finalist, who led the Crimson Tide to the national championship, said “there’s a chance” he will sit out the game.

“I just have to see how I feel,” Jones said. “I’m not going to go out there if I’m not 100%. It’s not fair to my teammates to not be 100% and try to play and not play well.

“I’m going to make the decision, but hopefully I can get the treatment and see how it feels.”
