Alabama coach Nick Saban said there's no structural damage to quarterback Bryce Young's right throwing shoulder and that he threw some in practice Wednesday, but Saban said a final decision on Young's playing status for Saturday's game against Texas A&M might not come until pregame warmups.

"Bryce has been practicing, and all week, he's been saying that he could play," Saban told ESPN on Thursday. "But that's going to be a medical decision. We've still got some time, and I want to talk more to Bryce. He's the only one who knows how he feels because it's going to be a pain-tolerance thing.

"He's a tough kid and great competitor. We'll see where he is on game day."

Saban said the plan from Alabama's medical staff was for Young not to throw on Thursday and instead rest his shoulder.
