Alabama (11-1) is a heavy favorite heading into its Sugar Bowl matchup against Oklahoma (10-2) on Jan. 2. However, the Crimson Tide's chances could dip slightly if senior guard Anthony Steen is unable to play following shoulder surgery to repair a partially torn labrum. The news was first reported by CBS' Jeremy Fowler.

Per Fowler:

It's uncertain when Steen suffered the injury or how much pain he played through, but getting the surgery done now instead of after the bowl game should give him a head start on NFL draft prep.
