While we will have to wait nearly a month to see the Alabama Football team again the team needed this break badly. The Alabama Football team was starting to get nicked up with injuries piling up to key players like Jase McClellan and Kool-Aid Mckinstry. The break will provide time for the Alabama Football team to get back its top cornerback and its leading rusher before facing the top-ranked Michigan Wolverines. McClellan missed the SEC Championship Game while Mckinstry was injured during the game leaving with a concussion per Nick Saban.
Several other key players have been dealing with injuries as Malachi Moore, Deontae Lawson, Trezmen Marshall, Terrion Arnold, and Jaylen Key have all missed time with injuries. Starting right tackle JC Latham also had a scare as he entered the injury tent in the second quarter but, didn’t miss any time. Starting Quarterback Jalen Milroe has even been seemingly dealing with an injury for the past few weeks.
Alabama Football: Get to full strength for two games
The most important thing for the Alabama Football team these next few weeks is getting back to full strength before the playoff begins. If this Alabama Football team can get fully healthy, they’ll be a force in this playoff and will have every opportunity to win the National Championship. The silver lining is that as far as we know none of the injuries suffered are season-ending injuries and we could see Alabama the freshest and healthiest they’ve been in their most important game of the year. The Alabama Football team saw what injuries could do to a season this weekend as they went up against a Georgia Bulldogs team missing Rara Thomas while Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey were also not playing 100%.
Michigan will also use the time to heal up as it played the Big Ten Championship game without starting center Drake Nugent and Will Johnson. Michigan will be without starting lineman Zak Zinter who suffered a season-ending injury in its matchup with Ohio State.
