TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday that wide receiver ArDarius Stewart is still questionable for Saturday’s game against Kent State.
Stewart sprained his knee in the first half of Alabama’s 48-43 win over Ole Miss this past Saturday.
During the game, Cam Sims saw the most snaps in Stewart’s place.
“Robert (Foster) will play some, but the guy that’s been playing really well for us is Cam Sims, so we would play him as well,” Saban said. “And there will be an opportunity for some others to play.”
Sims has played in two games this season. He has 1 catch for 12 yards. Foster has played in two games. He has 3 catches for 13 yards.
Beyond Sims and Foster, Saban mentioned freshman Trevon Diggs as a potential replacement. Diggs has been playing offense, defense and special teams in practice. Diggs has played in all three games. He has 1 catch for 14 yards.
“A young guy that we’ve been trying to play both ways who’s got a lot of promise is Trevon Diggs,” Saban said. “I think we’ll probably try to emphasize more offense with him this week.”
Saban said safety Eddie Jackson (shin), cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick and quarterback Jalen Hurts (wrist) should all be fine, but added that it “may take a day or so to get those guys back in the lineup.”
