Alabama center Barrett Jones will get a cortisone shot on his injured foot before tonight's national title matchup with Notre Dame, according to a team source.

Jones, who injured the foot against Georgia, looks fine in pre-game warmups and will be a full go against the Irish.

Alabama will need Jones against a physical Notre Dame defensive line led by nose tackle Louis Nix.

Sun Life Stadium is almost full with less than a half-hour before the game, with plenty of Notre Dame green in the stands.
