Nick Saban provides injury update on Alabama LB Drew Sanders
Alabama LB Drew Sanders has been dealing with a hand injury and hasn’t played since the Crimson Tide’s win over Ole Miss on Oct. 2.
But, it seems good news could be on the horizon as the Tide prepare for Saturday’s game against LSU.
Per coach Nick Saban, Sanders has a good possibility to be cleared in time to play against the Tigers:
Saban said Drew Sanders (hand) will start practicing this week.
"There's a good possibility, we think, that he may be cleared to play in this game."

So far this season, Sanders has 20 tackles, including 1 for a loss. He has 4 QB hits and 2 pass breakups, as well.
Having a healthy Sanders on the field would obviously be a big boost for the Alabama defense. We’ll see if he’s able to suit up on Saturday.
