Alabama coach Nick Saban said Wednesday that Sanders is “probably going to be out” for the game.
“It was maybe a little worse than we thought,” Saban said. “So he’s going to be game-to-game here for a few weeks.”
Sanders was already filling in for the Week 1 starter, Christopher Allen, who suffered a season-ending foot injury against Miami.
Sanders stepped into a starting role and has totaled 20 tackles this season. His four quarterback hurries is tied for most on the team.
On Monday, Saban announced that running back Jase McClellan suffered a season-ending knee injury during Saturday’s win over Ole Miss.
McClellan is tied for the second-most touchdowns on the team with five.
