Kenny Bell still on the team according to Saban

Posted: Updated:

Alabama senior wide receiver Kenny Bell twitted out this afternoon that he is leaving the team.

"It's been a nice run but I'm hanging up my cleats," Bell said.

The story blew up on social media, but was brought to a halt this afternoon during Saban's press conference.

"Kenny Bell, I gave a personal day to today, and he should be back to practice tomorrow," Saban said.

"Sometimes we have personal things that we need to get ironed out, and he had a day today to do that. So there is really nothing left to talk about when it comes to that."

Kenny Bell gave a little insight to those personal things on twitter "Time too focus on my responsibilities MY kids," Bell twitted out. "I've made so many memories here @ Alabama but some things you gotta let go."

The 5th year senior has played in 38 career games with the Tide. Bell led the team last season with a 25.4 yards per catch average.
