The University of Alabama will not appeal the two-game suspension of defensive lineman Marcell Dareus.

When the final NCAA ruling was announced last week, an appeal was considered in order to reduce the game suspension period from two games to one.

The appeal was obviously measured in order to have Dareus back for the contest against Penn State.

Nick Saban said the appeal will not move forward due to a lack of precedence.

Dareus will serve the final game of his suspension on Saturday night as the Crimson Tide play host to No. 19 Penn State.

Alabama running back Mark Ingram will begin “dry-land rehab” today as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery.

Ingram, who missed the contest against San Jose State, is listed as day-to-day and his status for Penn State is still uncertain.

In respect to Ingram actually hitting the field come Saturday night, “it’s probably a little bit of a stretch,” according to Alabama coach Nick Saban.
