It was a costly week of practice for Alabama.
After the first scrimmage of the fall Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, coach Nick Saban updated the growing injury list. Freshman defensive lineman DJ Dale, who has been earning rave reviews, sustained a sprained knee and will be out a couple of weeks. Starting Will Linebacker Joshua McMillon, who is running with the first team at inside linebacker, suffered a potential season ending ACL knee injury during the scrimmage. And five-star freshman running back Trey Sanders may be lost for the season due to a foot injury he sustained earlier in the week.
All in all, Saban is probably happy to hit the reset button for the week and start practice anew next week.
Of those injuries listed — that is not an extensive list, just the most recent — McMillon and Sanders are the most significant, given the worst-case scenarios. If McMillon is lost for the year, the most inexperienced position on the field gets even thinner.
Bama injuries bad for the players, but good for us
