TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The injury news was both good and bad for Alabama after its 57-7 victory against Arkansas State on Saturday.
Freshman cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis hurt his knee during pregame warmups. He came out with the team for the start of the game, but was on crutches with ice on his right knee.
He’ll have an MRI Sunday.
“It doesn’t seen good,” Nick Saban said. “He was doing a really good job. We felt really good about him. He would be the fifth corner on our team.
“Doc wasn’t optimistic, let me put it that way.”
Alabama hasn’t have a lot of depth at the position and already has three true freshmen on the depth chart.
Meanwhile, senior defensive end Isaiah Buggs suffered a sprained ankle and aggravated it during the second quarter. He could have returned, but Alabama already had a big lead.
“Nothing major,” he said. “I’ll be ready to go.”
Despite not playing in the second half he still had five tackles including a sack and a quarterback hurry.
