When the Alabama Crimson Tide take the field for their annual Spring Game at Bryant-Denny Stadium this weekend, the team could be without as many as eight players.
According to head coach Nick Saban, there are currently eight players expected to miss the game.
“We’ve got probably more guys out for this game than we’ve had in the past, which again, creates an opportunity for some other players to player,” Saban told TideSports.com.
“You’re always a little thinner in the spring without having the entire freshman class with you. We’ve got quite a few guys out of this game, but as I said before, it’s a great opportunity for some other guys to show what they can do and get out there and play and get some game-like experience.”
So, who are the players expected to miss the game?
That would be defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson, outside linebacker Ryan Anderson, wide receiver Cam Sims, outside linebacker Denzel Devall, cornerback Cyrus Jones, offensive lineman Brandon Kennedy and running back Bo Scarbrough.
Meanwhile, sophomore defensive back Laurence “Hootie” Jones is listed as questionable.
Alabama’s spring game will be held on Saturday.
