Alabama rolled through the fist month of the football season without a blemish in the win-loss columns. The Tide’s injury report is another story.

Nick Saban announced Monday that wide receiver DeAndrew White running back Dee Hart (pictured) will miss the remainder of the season with knee injuries. Both will require surgery.

The two players went down in Saturday’s 33-14 win over Ole Miss. White’s injury occurred in the first quarter and the receiver had to be helped off the field. Hart went down in the fourth quarter after catching a punt, and although he was able to make it to the sidelines, was clearly emotional heading into the locker room.

It’s an especially tough break for Hart, who missed all of last season with an ACL tear. Hart was the team’s fourth-leading rusher this season with 88 yards. White had eight receptions for 105 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

    Hate to see good players go down, no matter which team they’re on.

    Recover well guys.

    I feel the same as polegojim about injuries being sad whatever team a player is on. Most of these kids will never be the in NFL and receive only a scholarship and no pay and risk being crippled for life.. In Alabama’s case they have lost 5 players this year and all were high four stars or 5 stars with a reasonable chance for the NFL. But now who knows?

    Most of the time, the players that go to Alabama are highly recruited and highly ranked, and they consistently bring those kind of top 5 classes in. On a normal team, when a starter goes down, that player is usually missed and it shows up on a stat sheet so people look forward to that player coming back. At Alabama, one injury like that and the next stud recruit will play and you are basically forgotten. Not to mention the player will have an uphill battle to get back on the field he gets healthy. That kind of reasoning is probably how other teams sway kids from going to a school like that.
