Nick Saban updates status of Alabama LB Will Anderson, prognosis for Florida game
Alabama fans breathed a sigh of relief as it was revealed that linebacker Will Anderson’s knee injury suffered against Mercer on Sept. 11 turned out not to be a serious one.
Despite leaving in the 3rd quarter of the game against the Bears, Anderson walked off under his own power. He was later deemed “questionable” for his involvement leading up to the No. 1 Tide’s big showdown with No. 11 Florida in Gainesville before Nick Saban mentioned being “encouraged” by the recovery of the linebacker during his weekly press conference on Monday.
On his weekly radio show on Thursday, Saban said that Anderson practiced on Thursday and potentially could be ready to go for Saturday’s game at the Swamp barring a last-minute setback.
“We’ll see how it goes,” Saban said, according to Charlie Potter. “It’s kind of a day-to-day thing, but he did more today than he has all week. Hopefully, if that doesn’t create an issue for him then he’ll be OK in the game.”
Kickoff between the Crimson Tide and Gators is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
