Nick Saban’s premonitions about ArDarius Stewart earlier this were correct.

Saban said Monday he was “hopeful” the junior receiver would return from a knee sprain against Arkansas this Saturday, and that appears to be the case. Stewart suffered the injury at Ole Miss on Sept. 17 and has not played since then.

He’s Alabama’s second-leading receiver with 13 catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns. We’ll see how heavily Stewart is involved in the game plan when the No. 16 Razorbacks (4-1, 0-1) host No. 1 Alabama (5-0, 2-0) at 7 p.m. ET tonight on ESPN.
