At least four Alabama players will miss the Crimson Tide’s annual A-Day spring game Saturday.
Coach Nick Saban told reporters Thursday that running backs Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris and B.J. Emmons, and linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton will all sit because of injuries.
Scarbrough suffered a non-surgical lower right leg fracture in January’s national championship game loss to Clemson. He has practiced this spring but hasn’t taken contact for precautionary reasons.
After last Friday’s scrimmage, in which he didn’t participate, Saban said Scarbrough looked to be “pretty much full speed.”
Harris sprained his foot in Alabama’s first spring scrimmage on April 8 and has since been limited in practice.
Emmons continues to recover from a season-ending foot injury last fall that required surgery and Hamilton tore his ACL in Alabama’s SEC championship game win against Florida last December.
Alabama’s A-Day is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. CT on ESPN. The intrasquad scrimmage will be held at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
