TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama coach Nick Saban announced Monday that starting right guard Alphonse Taylor is “day-to-day” to open Texas A&M week.
Taylor suffered a concussion in Alabama’s win over Arkansas two weeks ago. Taylor did not travel with the team on Saturday for the Crimson Tide’s 49-10 win at Tennessee.
“He’s day-to-day. We’ll continue to evaluate his circumstance and situation,” Saban said. “We always have player safety in mind as to when the medical staff makes the decision as to when he’s cleared to be able to practice and play. He’s probably going to do some individual stuff today, but no contact.”
Taylor, a senior, did not play in the second half of Alabama’s game at Arkansas. He was replaced by sophomore Lester Cotton.
Cotton started in Taylor’s place on Saturday at Tennessee. Cotton has now started three games this season.
Last week, Taylor practiced in a black, non-contact jersey during Alabama’s Monday workout. He was not spotted on the field during the media viewing periods of practice on Tuesday or Wednesday.
