Alabama deals with injuries on offense
Spring practice continued Wednesday, and Alabama is still dealing with injuries on the offensive side of the ball. Running back Brian Robinson watched practice off to the side and appeared to be limited. Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy remained out with a knee injury. In addition to him, fellow wide receiver Tyrell Shavers was out with a injury. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Shavers damaged a ligament in his foot and it required surgery. He will be out for the rest of the spring, but Saban added Shavers will, “be all right for the season next year.”
