Nick Saban met with Alabama media after practice on Wednesday. With Alabama hit hard by a slew of injuries this season, Saban gave injury updates on two players, and also provided some details on the quarterback situation.

The Crimson Tide can give a small sigh of relief. A’Shawn Robinson was carted off the field during Monday’s practice with what was said to be an ankle injury. According to Saban, there’s nothing to worry about.

Robinson was reportedly seen in a walking boot during Wednesday’s practice, but Saban thinks he could be back any day. An All-SEC honorable mention last fall, Robinson is expected to anchor a deep and talented defensive line group in 2015.

Saban confirmed that freshman running back Bo Scarbrough did in fact undergo surgery for his torn ACL on Monday.

Scarbrough was injured in last week’s scrimmage. After redshirting last fall due to academic issues, Scarbrough was in line to be the primary backup behind Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake. Saban did say that he hopes Scarbrough could be back at some point this season, which would be welcome for a running backs group that is suddenly on the thin side.

Alabama, for the second straight year, has an opening at quarterback. Apparently, no one has separated from the pack yet.

Jacob Coker, the player many expected to win the starting job last year, is still battling for the starting position. He’s working against redshirt junior Alec Morris, redshirt freshman David Cornwell and early enrollee Blake Barnett. Cooper Bateman has been spending some time at wide receiver.

Speaking of position changes, the Tide are trying several players out at new spots.

Saban has said that spring is the time to experiment, and he’s apparently getting in the lab and putting on his goggles. Thompson, a touted safety early enrollee, is working with a wide receivers group that lacks for experience. However, safety needs help too.

Jackson playing with that group is interesting. Saban has specifically called Jackson out this spring, saying he needs to improve in pass coverage. Jackson played cornerback and started for much of last season, but was beat on deep balls a little too often for Saban’s liking. Alabama lacks experience at safety right now, as Geno Smith just recently returned to practice after a DUI arrest. Alabama is looking for two new starters at the position, with Landon Collins and Nick Perry departing. Hootie Jones and Jabriel Washington have worked with the first team since Smith’s arrest.
