TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Two Alabama starters will be limited on Monday as the Crimson Tide opens Tennessee week.
No. 1 Alabama travels to Knoxville, Tenn. on Saturday for a date with No. 9 Tennessee. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
“We have a couple of guys who’ll be out today, probably,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday. “Hopefully they’ll be back tomorrow. We’re a little banged up after this game. Not serious things, but things that may require another day of rest for several guys including Reuben Foster and Alphonse Taylor.”
Foster and Taylor suffered concussions in Alabama’s 49-30 victory over Arkansas on Saturday. Foster left the game in the third quarter. He was replaced by junior Rashaan Evans. Taylor didn’t play in the second half. Lester Cotton replaced Taylor.
Saban said Foster suffered his injury by hitting his head on the ground. Saban wasn’t sure how Taylor sustained his concussion.
