Each Monday Alabama head coach Nick Saban speaks to the members of the media to give a quick recap of the previous week’s game and to also look ahead to the upcoming opponent.
Coach Saban had a lot to say in his brief time with the media. Here are a few of the quick hitters.
Saban mentioned that he was pleased with the execution this past Saturday from the team.
He mentioned that the atmosphere at Bryant-Denny has been great this season and it will need to be again against Arkansas.
Saban was very complimentary of Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman.
From an injury standpoint, Saban said that Roydell Williams is out with a knee injury that will require surgery. JoJo Earle is out for a week or two, but his injury will not require surgery.
On the current running back situation, Saban mentioned that you can’t really change the offense a lot. And that the coaching staff will probably look for an emergency option at the position.
On the progress of Trey Sanders, Saban said he did a good job when he got in the game against New Mexico State. And with the injuries, he now has a great opportunity.
Saban said that junior left tackle Evan Neal played very physical in last week’s game and that he has played well all year long.
