Saban says that decision ``is up to the NCAA.'' Saban did say Wednesday that Brandon Deaderick won't play after he was shot in the arm during a robbery attempt. Deaderick was released from the hospital Tuesday night.
The fifth-ranked Crimson Tide opens Saturday night against No. 7 Virginia Tech.
A university investigation concluded Jones and Ingram committed no violations by taking a fishing trip paid for by an Athens businessman. The university says the man was not an Alabama booster or fan.
The NCAA has not ruled on the players' status.
