Pair of Alabama defenders not practicing as Crimson Tide begin bowl prep
Alabama is gearing up for the Citrus Bowl against Michigan, but the Crimson Tide may be without two key defenders — Terrell Lewis and Trevon Diggs. Coach Nick Saban has not yet weighed in on their availability, but multiple reports suggest similar developments.
Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported: “From what I’ve heard, the current belief at Alabama is that the majority of the team will play in the bowl game against Michigan aside from Terrell Lewis — who has dealt with a couple significant injuries at Alabama — and maybe one other defensive player. … Continues to look like most of Alabama’s team is going to play in the bowl game aside from Terrell Lewis and maybe Trevon Diggs. All of Alabama’s NFL draft prospects are practicing today aside from Lewis and Diggs.”
Cecil Hurt of the Tuscaloosa News reported something something similar that they aren’t expected to play in the bowl game.
The other likely NFL players including WRs Jerry Jeudy, DeVonta Smith and Henry Ruggs, RBs Najee Harris, OT Jedrick Wills, LB Anfernee Jennings, S Xavier McKinney and DL Raekwon Davis.
Jeudy previously announced he will play in the Citrus Bowl.
