    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    Fowler was one of my favorites. Good luck to him and we certainly hope for a full recovery from a severe knee injury.

    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    Fowler was in a lot of pain Saturday. You hate to see this kind of thing and we all wish him a speedy recovery. Fowler performed a number of roles on offense and will be missed, especially in the blocking department.

    I knew he was done for the year when they pulled the red shirt off Kenyan Drake.

    On a happier note; don't let Drake's run around the end fool you into thinking he's just a burner, he loves to hit people when he runs.

    Hate this. Jalston is one of my favorite players; loved the options he gave us. Hope he makes a full recovery.

    Drake played against Michigan, so I think that decision was already made.

    Not knit-picking but he IS one of, if not THE favorite of mine. He can't perform for us right now but he's still a very important part of the team relative to his work ethic, leadership and having such a "Team First" attitude.

    Roll Tide JF. Wish you a full and speedy recovery.

    RTR!!!

    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    I agree with what was said earlier, the RB depth doesn't hurt us, it's his blocking and all the little stuff he does that will hurt us.

    OTOH, this is a huge opportunity for Kenyan Drake now.

    I really hope he can recover, I know it is going to be hard.

    Its time for some of the young ones to really step up, like TJ did against Michigan.
    What do you mean his senior year? He didn't play because of his age, not because of an injury.

    As already stated, Drake got a few plays against Michigan. Coach Saban said either the week before or the week of the Michigan game that all 5 RBs would play this season. Drake was going to play no matter what. His playing time just went up, though.

    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    I wondered before the season who would step out as a crowd favorite like Cody, Sunseri and the likes each year. Jalston stepped into that role and very few saw it coming, he was a one man wrecking crew against Michigan. One of his blocks for a TD was the loudest of all the hits by far.

    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    Jalston is one of my favorites too. He is definitely a bruiser. Smash mouth football at it's best.

    He has a still shot of the leg whip on his facebook page if you can stomach looking at it.

    Hope he has a speedy recovery and we see him back soon. Roll Tide!

    Our young backs should be able to fill the void collectively. Fowler will be missed.

    Re: Jalston Fowler to have Knee surgery, out for season

    I admit, I actually was looking forward to watching Jalston punish teams late in ballgames. We have other big backs, but not like Fowler, He runs angry.
