Saban also said it'll be Waddle's decision whether to play.
Waddle has been out since he broke his ankle Oct. 24 on a kickoff return versus Tennessee. It was presumed that he'd miss the rest of the season but he returned to practice last week.
Waddle's presence would give quarterback Mac Jones another dangerous weapon with which to attack Ohio State's defense. The wideout garnered Heisman consideration prior to his injury thanks to an incredible stat line of 557 receiving yards and four touchdowns over four games.
