Alabama’s closer-than-expected win over West Virginia came with a little bit of personnel cost.
Following the game, Nick Saban said that starting wide receiver DeAndrew White suffered what the head coach described as a “little separated shoulder.” At least for the moment, the prognosis is that White will be out for a week or so.
The Tide takes on FAU and Southern Miss the next two weeks before opening SEC play against Florida Sept. 20. Based on that schedule, it’s likely the UA medical staff will err on the side of caution when it comes to a return.
Prior to the injury, White had six catches for 73 yards. The receptions were a career-high, while the yardage was second to 82- and 80-yard efforts last season.
