Report: Alabama's Cam Sims sustains injury in practice
After two weekend arrests (Geno Smith and Jonathan Taylor), it seemed almost impossible that Alabama’s weekend could take yet another turn for the worse. It did just that Sunday morning as news surfaced that wideout Cam Sims sustained a knee injury during Saturday’s practice session.
Bama OnLine is reporting, citing sources, that Sims suffered an ACL injury during practice. Matt Zenitz, Alabama beat writer for AL.com, also reported Sims sustained an injury, but cited sources stating they were “unsure” of the severity of the injury or Sims’ health status at this time.

Sims, a former four-star recruit, was projected as one of Alabama’s top-four wideouts along with Chris Black, ArDarius Stewart and Robert Foster. He caught seven passes for 62 yards and one touchdown as a true freshman last season playing in a reserve role behind Amari Cooper, DeAndrew Whit and Christion Jones.
Sims did not confirm what his injury status is, but did send a tweet that has led many to believe he suffered a significant injury of some sort.
Watch how I handle this obstacle in my life… Minor set back for a major comeback

SDS will continue to update this story as it develops. Alabama head coach Nick Saban is expected to address the media Monday evening following the Tide’s next spring practice.
