Alabama's Barrett Jones returns to practice

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Crimson Tide received a boost on Tuesday when Barrett Jones returned to practice after suffering a foot injury in the SEC title game.

Alabama Crimson Tide center Barrett Jones returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time since injuring his foot in Alabama's victory in the SEC title game.

Jones' availability for the BCS title game is unknown, but his return to practice signifies at least a chance that he'll suit up and start for Alabama on Monday night.

Earlier in December, Jones vowed that he'd play in the title game, saying "I'll be fine."

One of the best offensive lineman in the country, Jones' return would certainly help the Crimson Tide against Notre Dame's top-ranked defense.

Alabama's senior center was named to the Football Writer's Association of America 2012 All-American Team, along with fellow offensive lineman Chance Warmack.

The Crimson Tide are scheduled to land in Florida on Wednesday night, and will then practice on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Per ESPN, both Alabama and Notre Dame have walk-throughs scheduled for Sunday, before the two teams square off for the BCS title game on Monday night.
