The Alabama football team was back on the practice field this afternoon, but spring break took its toll on one backup running back.
Coach Nick Saban told reporters Blake Sims suffered a minor injury playing basketball.
“Blake Sims had a little hip injury playing basketball or something during the break,” Saban said. “We try to get these guys not to play basketball, but they all think they can play in the NBA, so I guess we’ve just got to suffer the consequences for that.”
Sims experimented with the quarterback position last season but was moved over to the already-banged up running back position this spring.
Top returner Eddie Lacy will miss the entire 15-date spring practice schedule. That leaves Jalston Fowler, redshirt freshman Dee Hart, early-enrollee T.J. Yeldon and Sims to carry the load.
