Alabama's Allen, Shepherd injured
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama right tackle Austin Shepherd and defensive end Jonathan Allen both left the game against No. 21 Texas A&M.
Coach Nick Saban said after the seventh-ranked Crimson Tide's 59-0 victory that ''everything's OK.''
He says Shepherd had a sprained knee or ankle and could have returned after being helped off the field in the first half Saturday. He returned to the sideline wearing a protective boot on his left foot.
Saban says Allen suffered from cramps. The lineman left the game in the third quarter and was taken to the locker room on a cart.
Allen had two tackles, including a sack.
