Alabama makes decision on Bryce Young's availability vs. Texas A&M, NFL insider reports
Bryce Young will not play on Saturday against Texas A&M, according to a report from NFL insider Aaron Wilson.
He reported that it’s a precautionary measure, and cited a college football source.
Young’s availability has been in doubt since he suffered a sprained AC joint in his shoulder and left the Arkansas game last week. Jalen Milroe replaced him as the Crimson Tide knocked off the Razorbacks.

Coach Nick Saban has said throughout the week that it’s not a long-term type injury, and Young is day-to-day, in terms of being able to throw the ball.
“We’ll just have to evaluate it day to day,” he said. “So I can’t tell you if that’s going to be today, tomorrow, or the next day.”
Alabama is more than a 3-touchdown favorite against Texas A&M, and a high-profile game looms next week when the Crimson Tide travel to Tennessee, which is undefeated entering this week’s game at LSU.
