Nearly two weeks ago, Alabama RB Trey Sanders was hospitalized after being injured in a car accident.

Sanders, from Port St. Joe, Florida, was back home while the Crimson Tide was on a scheduled bye week. Reporters in the Florida panhandle shared that Sanders had to be life-flighted to a nearby hospital. Other details have gradually trickled out as Sanders returned to the UA facility in a wheelchair.

On his Thursday night radio show, Saban shared more details about what happened to the redshirt freshman running back.

“He got T-boned in his car. He wasn’t driving, but they were just pulling out to go across an intersection and he got hit on his side,” Saban said. “We’re thankful. He’s got some very serious injuries, but everything has worked out very well. I think he’ll make a full recovery, but this is probably gonna be a several month type thing. He had a hip injury, but not the same kind that Tua had, so there shouldn’t be any question about his recovery.

“We feel very fortunate.”

The driver Saban is referring to is Trey’s older brother Umstead Sanders. Umstead played linebacker at Florida before transferring to Jacksonville State.

A former 5-star recruit in the class of 2019, Trey Sanders missed his true freshman season after suffering an injury during fall camp. This season, Sanders has appeared in 4 games, recording 30 rushes for 134 yards. He also has a 17-yard kickoff return.
