TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama wide receiver ArDarius Stewart is out for the Crimson Tide’s homecoming matchup vs. Kentucky.
Stewart is still recovering from a knee injury suffered against Ole Miss two weeks ago. Stewart missed Alabama’s game last week vs. Kent State.
Stewart was spotted on the field carrying his now infamous “assassins axe.”
Stewart was listed as questionable this week. He participated in practice, but Alabama is likely being cautious with Stewart’s long-term health.
Stewart has 13 receptions for 205 yards and 3 touchdowns on the season.
Wide receivers Cam Sim and freshman Trevon Diggs stepped in for Stewart last week vs. Kent State. Sims caught 4 passes for 54 yards. Diggs had 3 catches for 23 yards in the Kent State game.
“Trevon Diggs and Cam Sims did a really good job in the last game,” Saban said Wednesday. “(Gehrig) Dieter is still working and doing a good job. Robert has practiced some this week. All the guys, you know who’s on the roster. They don’t fall out of the sky. We’re coaching the guys we have, they’re doing a good job. That’s our main focus and concern, the guys on our team, how can we make them better and how can they be more productive when the game comes, and they’ve been working hard to do that and we’re happy about that.”
