    Just How Beat Up Are We - Injuries

    Seems like the injuries are really taking their toll and a lot more going down last night with numerous guys more than likely needing surgery after the season.Jones, McCarron, Williams just to name a few. But just how healthy will we be in a month?

    Other than the guys that have been out all/most of the season, I would pretty much expect everyone who`s dinged up will be ready. Barrett`s already said he`ll play and Jessie and Stinson, both of whom went down, came back in and played.

    We will be close to 100% in 5 weeks. Similar to the Michigan game.

    15 is on the way.

    The nature and extent of the injuries which we have experienced this year is staggering.

    I believe CNS responded to a question during the post-game presser that it is unprecedented [presumably during his tenure at Bama...]

    I've never seen anything like it, and can only pray that, as other posters say above, most of our injured guys will be good to go Jan 7th...

    I think we've got a lot of little nagging injuries that 5 weeks off will help with...we should be better and halthier come January 7th.

    except for the season ending injuries, of course.

    I think part of the decline in our play in the latter part of the season was due to players that were healthy enough to play but weren't healthy. I didn't realize Barrett Jones had been playing with a nagging injury. We all knew about the notable injuries at WR. Cooper with his nagging ankle injury. Also, Lacy with his on going issue with his ankle. AJ with his shoulder.

    Taking a step back and looking at the totality of all of these "minor" injuries it is a wonder we didn't lose more than one game. Five weeks ought to cure all of that.

    I believe I did read that they were going to do an MRI on Williams just to make sure there is nothing wrong with the knee. It's likely just a precaution. Hopefully that will be fine and Ivory will be full strength. Without them both we got owned up the middle.

    Dude no doubt about that. It was amazing to see how Jawga (as soon as they realized Williams was out) started immediately running between the tackles. HUGE running lanes!!!

    IIRC, he actually said that it was the most injuries he has had on a team as a head coach.

    Resilience. This team's got it.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    any chance that Bell will be ok to go? it will be right at 5 weeks for him.
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.

    The really cool thing is that we can't blame anything on the injuries. Bama just has so much talent that all we do is plug in the next man up. This could not be said on the previous coaching staff.
