According to twitter and a few email tips (thanks Michael), Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Rolando McClain does not have Chron’s disease. According to Doug Farrar’s twitter, “Charley Casserly on NFL NET says that Rolando McClain does not have Chron’s Disease. That’s a new report, as far as I know.”
Others who heard the report said the “Path to the Draft” show on NFL Network reported that members of McClain’s family had the disease, but not the standout Alabama football player.
Ian Rapoport summed up the response to this report the best. From his twitter, “Um… so Rolando McClain is lying about himself?”
