Alabama LT Cam Robinson out ‘a couple of weeks’ with sprained ankle

Tuesday October 28th, 2014

Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson will be out “a couple of weeks” with a high ankle sprain, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said.

Robinson was injured in the third quarter of Saturday’s win at Tennessee.

Saban didn’t offer any other information about the injury, according to Andrew Gribble of

Robinson, a 6-foot-6, 323-pound true freshman from West Monroe, La., was a five-star prospect, according to, and was rated as the top offensive tackle in the class of 2014.

He has been one of the best freshman offensive linemen in the country and had started all eight games for the 7-1 Crimson Tide.

Senior Leon Brown moved over from right guard to replace Robinson, with redshirt freshman Bradley Bozeman stepping in at right guard.

Alabama is on a bye this week, but if Saban’s timetable is correct, Robinson would be out when the No. 3 Crimson Tide visit No. 16 LSU on Nov. 8.
