Update: Great news for Tide fans. Cooper only has a bruised knee and could have returned, if he was needed. Nick Saban updated reporters after the contest.

Earlier: Alabama leads "cupcake week" opponent Western Carolina 17-7 in the second quarter, but that is hardly the biggest storyline from today's game so far. Star receiver Amari Cooper, who very well may be a Heisman finalist this season for the Crimson Tide, left the game early with an injury.

Cooper has since returned to the sideline, but it seems unlikely that the Alabama coaches would risk his health by putting him back in the game.
