No. 2 Alabama’s Backfield Dealt Another Injury Blow

Second-ranked Alabama lost a third tailback to injury this weekend when the Crimson Tide’s No. 2 rusher Roydell Williams went down with a right knee injury against New Mexixo State.

Coach Nick Saban said Monday Williams’ will require surgery and that he will be out “for a while.”

When Alabama hosts No. 21 Arkansas Saturday the Crimson Tide will try to beat the Razorbacks with two full-time scholarship tailbacks available, Brian Robinson Jr. and Trey Sanders.
