All the above have dealt with minor injuries as the season has come to a close. None played in Week 13 against Georgia Tech, though all but McConkey were considered questionable or lesser heading into Saturday against the Yellow Jackets.
Obviously, having all 4 back will be a major storyline. Bowers is one of the best pass-catchers in the nation when healthy, and the more help Carson Beck can get against a dangerous Alabama defense, the better.
The title game is set to kick off at 4 p.m. ET Saturday.
