Live updates: Nick Saban updates injuries and the latest with the Crimson Tide

Fresno State-Alabama football-Week 2

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama continued its preparations for Colorado State, and worked on the rain-soaked practice fields on Wednesday.

Earlier on the SEC coaches’ weekly teleconference he commented on what he’s seen on game film about Rams quarterback Nick Stevens:

“Well, he does a great job of executing their offense,” Saban said. “They do a lot of ‘check with me’ and he’s a smart player that gets them in the right play a lot. Very, very efficient in the passing game. They’ve got a lot of good concepts that they use, they’ve got good skill players, they create great balance on offense and he takes what the defense gives.
“He’s a very accurate passer and probably, from a passing standpoint, maybe the most efficient guy we’ve played against so far this year.”

Here’s some of what Nick Saban said during his press conference:

• Had a pretty good week of practice, nice to get outside. Obviously needed that work in the kicking game (can’t really do it inside).

• Saban is playing up grasping every opportunity, and don’t have regrets.  “If you respect your talent, you have an obligation to yourself to work to be the best you can be.”

• Colorado State will go-huddle a lot which can be problematic. Fan noise could be a factor.

• No new injuries. Trying to get ready to improve.



This story will be regularly updated during the press conference.
