Alabama WR White dealing with second injury, to be a game-time decision
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — University of Alabama coach Nick Saban disclosed during his weekly radio show that senior wide receiver DeAndrew White has been dealing with a second injury and will be a game-time decision at Ole Miss on Saturday.
White has been limited the past two weeks by a sprained toe sustained during the Florida game on Sept. 20. His initial injury was a shoulder injury against West Virginia in the season opener.
“He’s been a bit unlucky,” Saban said Thursday evening.
White has 12 receptions for 121 yards this season. Despite missing two games he’s still second on the team behind junior Amari Cooper’s 43 catches for 655 yards.
“It’s a tough matchup for defenses with DeAndrew out there because he’s a great player and he’s a great route runner,” Cooper said earlier this week.
“We have a lot of weapons at receiver here. Everyone who plays receiver here is really fast and can do a lot of things. It’ll be hard to try to defend that.”
Sophomore Chris Black started in White’s place against Florida Atlantic and Southern Miss.
