Saban also updates Dee Hart situation

Dee Hart made his debut in a crimson jersey Saturday night against LSU. He just wore it. Didn’t play in it.

So, four months after his reported torn ACL injury, where does the star freshman running back stand? Nick Saban faced that question this afternoon in his weekly news conference. His answer took a few turns.

He said it was another step in his recovery process. Hart has been cleared for football-related practice a few weeks ago, which we documented with video a few times (here and here).

So will be play this season?

“No we probably won’t do that, unless we have to do it, or need to do it, relative to the health of some other players. We’re certainly not going to put him in a situation that he’s not ready to physically be able to be safe in, and that’s going to be up to the medical staff, but he is at that point now where he’s starting to get very close to being able to come back.

“We don’t really have any timeframe to say ‘He’s going to play in this game.’ Or even that we would play him in that game if he was cleared to play in the game.”
