Guys i hope he can. But that six week recovery time is minimal time for the bone to heal. Big question i would have is whether rod was inserted in tibia or fibula. If he is bearing full weight already i would lean towards fibula which greatly increases chances he could play.
Pretty sure Walsh posted sometime this past week that it would be unlikely he would be playing Jan. 7th. Too lazy to look up exactly what he posted.

Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Pretty sure he had a pin or plate inserted the Sunday morning immediately following the game.
We were told it would be six weeks from the surgery for him to start running -- which would not have been enough time to get up to football speed.
Guys I'm not saying he will or won't play, just don't get your hopes up. That's a major injury he sustained and he's got a rod in his leg.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
That would be awesome
Thank you Crish!
Thanks, Chris! I knew it was some type of bring us back to reality type of post.
Based on the lack of deformity on the play, I assumed fibula - which can be plated and NOT result in a season ending injury, as it is a non-weight bearing bone. But, I thought someone said a nail was inserted, which would lean toward tibia. Of course, I haven't seen many nails placed for non-significant tibial fractures, which should've been easy to spot as Son of Fake Holland pulled his usual state of play and rolled up KB's leg.

"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
An ORIF procedure involving a tibial fracture would assuredly mean hes a no-go. I could see a fibula fracture giving him a chance
So, let me see if I've got this straight. KB was seen at the mall not limping. He was also seen at graduation noticeably limping. He somehow managed to have a rod inserted without having surgery. Notre Dame's secondary is now one of the worst in the country and provides a wonderful opportunity for our young WRs to get some experience. Did I miss anything?
1) He had a rod placed in his Tibia
2) He has just started running in a pool for rehab.
I highly doubt he will be close to being able to play. Thinking otherwise is foolish. He won't be anywhere close to %100 and it'd be crazy to throw him out there
Eat clean. Train Hard.
Love me some KB but I think we will still win without him.
I'll always remember him as Recruit X for his signing day flip from LSU.
Out of curiousity, could you please allude to where you heard the 'word'?
