When you’re 8-0 and the No. 1 team in the country, it’s tough to find too much to complain about, but that doesn’t mean Alabama is a perfect team.

One legitimate concern, though, is the lack of a reliable punt returner. The Crimson Tide have botched more than their fair share of punt returns this year.

Now, coach Nick Saban is considering a surprising option. On Tuesday, he said he’d consider having star DB Minkah Fitzpatrick return some punts:

The only problem with that strategy is that Fitzpatrick is incredibly valuable to the Alabama defense, so if he got hurt on a punt return, it would be devastating to the Crimson Tide.

However, if the Crimson Tide are in a situation down the stretch where they need someone reliable to field a punt, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Fitzpatrick get the call.
