    I think so, he may be faster, but I don't know about his hands.

    Re: How bad does Kenny Bell's injury hurt?

    Haven't ever broke my leg but I would bet it would hurt real bad! Maybe someone will ask him and he will tell us. And as someone else said he should get some good meds to help him deal with the pain. I'm pretty sure he will be busting his tail to get back ASAP!

    I have and it does. It's a good sign that he was able to be back out there on the sideline supporting those guys in the second half. Sometimes there are issues besides pain that would prevent someone from being able to do that.

    Re: How bad does Kenny Bell's injury hurt?

    it sucks, but shouldnt be crushing considering coop and norwood run the deep routes as well. I wonder if we will see the red shirt come off Chris Black, now that he's back at practice and we may be short handed.

    I must admit Chris Black crossed my mind also. From what I was told in the off season, barring injury both Black and Cooper were good enough to start. When a player is that good, you only get three years anyway. It will be interesting to see how much contact he gets if any. I would think if we beat UGA and he is the best option its worth a redshirt.

    Re: Kenny Bell's injury - vs. GA ?

    It hurts, obviously. If Alabama could have stayed injury free that would have been fantastic. As it is, yes we have to worry. Can you imagine what this offense would look like with everyone at RB and WR? I think the interesting thing is to see what the status of Chris Black is. Yes, you don't burn a red-shirt over nothing, but this is the SEC Championship Game and hopefully the National Championship game. If you are going to have a two game season, this is it.

    I would think that everything is on the table right now for Saban. I'd be digging around the injured players and redshirts to see if anyone could help win these next two games. In terms of the injury, it's all relative, but it's astounding to think of who has been lost at WR. First we know Duron never made the field, then Black got hurt, then White, now Bell (who I hope can somehow make it back in time for the bowl game).

    His speed on the crossing routes is what we will miss the most, and was where he turned a lot of 10 yd gains into explosive plays.

    I am watching the game again and I hate knowing that we won't see Bell out there anymore. He is so talented and fast.

    Re: How bad does Kenny Bell's injury hurt?

    its definetly going to hurt without his experience, but i feel we have others that can step up. christian jones, cyrus jones and shinn need to be ready. from what i have heard and seen from some videos, black is gonna be a superstar. if he is 100%, i say give him a chance..

    Re: How bad does Kenny Bell's injury hurt?

    We recruit these guys at high level that expect to be gone in 3 years(4 at most). Black even with a burnt RS would still have 3 seasons to play after this and from I read prior to the injury was expected to play this season as a true freshman. Remember Black was an EE and wa shere for spring camp. He has already been practicing. He also was the higher rated comingout of HS over Cooper. Without looking I do not think any WR recruit has been rated higher under Saban except Julio. The kid has the ability. Whether or not the staff feels he is ready we will find out soon enough.

    Another name to watch for is Cyrus Jones who has seen time in ST and is very fast. To bad E Williams fif not work out.

    well we dont have anyone available with his explosiveness after the catch. sadly IMO this is where we likely will miss having him in.
