Will Michigan State senior safety RJ Williamson be ready to play against Alabama in the Cotton Bowl?

After having surgery on an injured bicep in early October, R.J. Williamson has been working to make a return to the Spartans defensive lineup before the season ended. Will Williamson be ready by the Cotton Bowl against Alabama? He answered that question and more following the Spartans win over Iowa.

For R.J. Williamson the 2015 season was to be the one that set him up for a possible future in football at the next level while helping the Michigan State Spartans have one of their best seasons to date under head coach Mark Dantonio.

While the Spartans are now heading to the College Football Playoff following their win over Iowa to become Big Ten Champions, Williamson has watched from the sidelines since he had bicep surgery in early October as the Spartans have seen their share of struggles in the secondary.

However, dressing in the Spartans final home game against Penn State had some excited but we soon learned it was more for Williamson to get his final apperance in Spartan Stadium for Senior Day than to take the field.

Saturday night, Williamson was again listed on the Spartans dress list for their Big Ten Championship game against Iowa as freshman safety Khari Willis sat out.

Following the game Spartan Digest spoke with the Dayton, Ohio native about the ups and downs of his final year along with the Spartans heading to the College Football Playoff and if he feel's he'll be dressed and ready to play against Alabama in the Cotton Bowl at the end of the month.
