Alabama didn’t have any trouble with New Mexico State on Saturday, winning 59-3 in what was expected to be a blowout.

The victory, however, did come at a cost, as sophomore running back Roydell Williams was forced to leave the game with a knee injury.

On Monday during his weekly press conference, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said that Williams’ injury would require surgery. Saban didn’t offer a timeline for a return.

Saban also provided an injury update on JoJo Earle, who was also forced to leave the game with the Aggies after sustaining a leg injury. The freshman wide receiver will not need surgery.

Saban added that with Williams now sidelined and all of the other injury issues that Alabama has had at running back that some roster creativity might be necessary.

Williams has carried the ball 48 times for 284 yards and a touchdown this season, while Earle has recorded 12 receptions for 148 yards.

The Crimson Tide return to action on Saturday at home against Arkansas.
