Nick Saban shares injury updates on 3 Alabama players ahead of MSU game
At his Wednesday post-practice press conference, Nick Saban labeled LaBryan Ray as “probably questionable,” but it sounds unlikely the Alabama defensive lineman will play against Mississippi State on Saturday.
“To get him right and get him well, it probably would be much better for us to just wait until after this bye week,” Saban said. “He’s been out there, he’s practiced, but he continues to has issues and problems. We just need to shut him down and let him get healed up so that this is not gonna be a problem in the future.”
Saban also had updates on Deonte Brown and Ronald Williams.
“Deonte Brown has practiced every day,” Saban said of the senior offensive lineman who got banged up in the Tennessee game.
Williams, who broke his arm in fall camp, has also been practicing.
“He’s been practicing for the last two weeks, he didn’t go to Tennessee because he was sick but he did practice and we would’ve taken him on the trip,” Saban said. “He has practiced all week this week, so, I think he’s feeling more and more comfortable using his arm. It’s healed, he’s been cleared but you know, a player has to get comfortable using whatever was hurt before he’s going to be ready to play but I see significant progress this week.”
We’ll see if any of the three Crimson Tide players against the Bulldogs. The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. CT kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium, airing on ESPN.
