Alabama's Saban says DB Brown remains suspended for Clemson

Alabama coach Nick Saban says defensive back Tony Brown remains suspended after he was sent home from the Cotton Bowl last week for violating team rules.

Saban has not said specifically what Brown did to be suspended. On a teleconference Monday, Saban said ''until we get any new information, he will continue to be suspended.''

Brown is a former five-star recruit who was second on the depth chart at both cornerback and safety and a mainstay on kick and punt coverage teams. The sophomore had 16 tackles on the season, including a team-high eight on special teams.
