Alabama running back Kenyan Drake and defensive end Jarran Reed are "suspended but not kicked off the team" in light of their recent arrests, coach Nick Saban said Thursday at SEC Media Days.

"They're suspended from activity," Saban said. "When they prove that I think or we think that they're ready to come back and show a little bit more responsibility and discipline for how they handle themselves, their decision making, how they represent the university, their family and themselves, then we'll allow them to come back on the team.

"We're not making that judgment, you know, right now."

Drake, who has been disciplined a handful of teams throughout his first two seasons with the Crimson Tide, was arrested early July 5 for obstructing governmental operations. Reed, a junior-college transfer who arrived in January, was arrested for driving under the influence early Sunday.
