Injuries continue to plague Alabama as the program prepares for the most important game on its schedule. The latest offensive player to miss time is Miller Forristall, who suffered an injury on Saturday against Arkansas.
Alabama managed to blow out Arkansas without Tua Tagovailoa this past weekend. Mac Jones had a solid performance as the starting quarterback, completing 18-of-22 pass attempts for 235 yards and three touchdowns.
While the Crimson Tide expect Tagovailoa to return soon, the offense won't have its starting tight end for a significant period of time.
According to Aaron Suttles of The Athletic, the Crimson Tide will be without Forristall for several weeks due to an injury he sustained on Saturday.
Forristall is having a solid season for Alabama as he currently has 12 receptions for 131 yards and three touchdowns.
The next tight end on the depth chart is Major Tennison, who has three catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in limited action this season.
Nick Saban might not give too much information on Forristall's injury because the Crimson Tide have the week off.
Losing Forristall for next weekend's showdown between Alabama and LSU certainly has to sting for Saban. However, the coaching staff has ample time to figure out how it'll replace its top tight end for the next few games.
