Nick Saban shares encouraging update on pair of DBs who missed Week 2 game
Nick Saban met with the media Wednesday night in advance of No. 1 Alabama’s SEC opener at 11th-ranked Florida on Saturday.
Among a number of topics, Saban offered updates on the health status of defensive backs Josh Jobe and Jalyn Armour-Davis, both of who were unavailable for Saturday’s 48-14 win over Mercer due to undisclosed injuries.
“They’ve practiced all the plays; they’re out there playing every day,” Saban said. “They seem like they’re doing OK to me.”
