Alabama tight end, receiver 'very questionable' for Iron Bowl
Coach Nick Saban reportedly said Vogler and Stewart are "very questionable" after sustaining "stretched knee ligaments" in last Saturday's win over Western Carolina and not participating in practice this week.
From the report:
Coach Nick Saban said starting tight end Brian Vogler and receiver ArDarius Stewart were "very questionable" for the 6:45 p.m. Saturday game with Auburn. Neither have practiced all week, he said. Players who go this deep into the week without practicing rarely play, and if they do, participation is limited.
Vogler, a fifth-year senior, has caught three passes for 13 yards and a touchdown this season while Stewart, a redshirt freshman, has recorded 12 receptions for 149 yards.
Alabama is 10-1 (6-1 SEC) and ranked first in the latest version of the College Football Playoff rankings, while Auburn is 8-3 (4-3 SEC) and ranked 15th.
The Crimson Tide has won four of the last six Iron Bowls, but the Tigers won last year's meeting at Jordan-Hare Stadium on the improbable Kick-Six play.
