Trezmen Marshall says he's good to go. Speaking to the media this week, Marshall said the injury that caused him to early exit vs. Arkansas won't keep him out of the lineup Saturday when No. 11 Alabama hosts Tennessee at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"I am feeling great," Marshall said. "just getting treatment. Trying to heal up and get ready for this big game."

And it is a big game. Alabama must win Saturday to keep its SEC and playoff hopes alive.

Marshall is a Georgia transfer. He said one of his current teammates, Deontae Lawson, reminds him of a former great he played with in Athens.

"I was like, ‘Bro, you remind me of Nakobe [Dean],'" Marshall said of Lawson. "I can look up to you. Even though you’re younger than me, I can look up to you because you lead the right way."

Kool-Aid McKinstry seconds that motion.

"[Lawson] Is a real-deal leader. When he speaks, everyone listens because we know we can trust him," McKinstry said earlier this week. "He knows the scheme. He knows exactly what he's talking about."

Marshall went from playing from Nick Saban disciple Kirby Smart to the man himself.

"I love Coach Saban," Marshall said, flashing a big grin. "I love him. It's crazy how much I love him. Just being here, I found out this is really a tradition school. Everything here is traditional, and I like that. I love that about this school."

Through seven games this year, Marshall has posted 40 total tackles with 3.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
