    I would say Cyrus Jones and C Black both could as well.

    Kenny Bell's injury - vs. GA ?

    Next man up. There's no stopping Cooper either. Norwood is back and Jones is very good in his on right. Yeldon out the backfield? Well we know how that goes. Don't forget the TEs.

    I think Coop is as explosive as Bell. Someone commented that Saban mentioned "stress fracture." I certainly hope not. I'd rather have a clean break, any day...

    kenny bell is a exceptional receiver. he has the speed to prevent double teaming cooper at will. he is especially good at getting open across the middle or down the middle. and most of all he is our best blocking receiver. very important on the runs and screens.

    My wife and I love Kenny Bell and he of course will be missed. Anytime Kenny Bell makes a play my wife and I say his name real fast. Say it with me. Kenny Bell!
    I do however believe someone will step up and if I am Chris Black and it's for the SEC Championship and National Championship I convince Coach to let me go in. This is what I came here for.

    I don't see CB playing and passing others on the depth chart while not playing a single play this year. Cy Jones, Shinn and others will provide good depth behind Amari, Christion and Kevin. GA has had big injuries to their WR's this year also so lets see which teams WR's step up.

    I agree with you on Cooper. There is no question he's our best WR and Norwood is probably our second best WR. What hurts us losing Bell is his speed. Bell stretches the field. You have know where he is and respect his speed. In my opinion Cooper, White and Bell were our three best speed receivers. Now we are without two of the three. Losing Bell hurts our speed at WR not to mention our depth at WR.

    Great point. He does a great job blocking. On most of our long runs, you can see #7 blocking someone. This may open up the opportunity for Danny Woodson Jr. to get some playing time also. I think Woodson and Shinn both have the ability to be productive. Its just a matter of confidence and focusing on their job. I hate to see Chris Black burn his redshirt, but if Woodson and Shinn can't execute blocking and getting open, Saban may choose to play Chris.

    This. I had a stress fracture (femur...really bad) last year training for a run. My orthopedist told me it could take up to 3x as long to heal as compared to a normal fracture. Plus, it can reappear easily if an athlete tries to rush the recovery process.

    Granted, I'm an old fart and all, and I know Bell would obviously heal faster, but I hope that was just Saban not really using the correct terminology. However, I was listening to the post game on the way home last night, and he did use the term 'stress fracture' at least twice.

    Hopefully it's a 'normal' break, and he'll be back to full speed and strength by spring.
