Nick Saban says Alabama football LB Christopher Allen most likely out for the season with foot fracture
Alabama football redshirt senior edge rusher Christopher Allen is "most likely out for the year" with a foot injury, coach Nick Saban said Monday.
"Chris Allen does have a foot fracture that will require surgery," Saban said.
Allen suffered the injury in the first half Saturday in the 44-13 victory over Miami. He had to be carted off the field, and when he returned, he was using crutches and wearing a boot.
Before he left, though, he had three total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.
After the game, Saban said that Allen had a "pretty significant foot injury."
With Allen out, sophomores Drew Sanders and Chris Braswell and freshman Dallas Turner each saw time. Sanders finished with six total tackles.
