Alabama vs. Georgia: Injuries force Tide to shuffle wideouts

Mike Zarrilli

The Alabama Crimson Tide have an even thinner group at WR going into the SEC Championship Game after Kenny Bell went down with a broken leg.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will be without wide receiver Kenny Bell when they take on the Georgia Bulldogs for the SEC title, as he broke his leg last Saturday against Auburn. Bell is the third wide receiver to go down for the year for the Tide, whose already thin group of wide receivers will be even thinner this Saturday.

Freshman Amari Cooper has had a breakout season for Alabama, and veterans Christion Jones and Kevin Norwood have had productive seasons as well. However, it says something that Alabama head coach Nick Saban is considering burning freshman Chris Black's redshirt for this game. Black had shoulder surgery in August, and DeAndrew White was lost to a knee injury a few weeks into the season.

Georgia has had receiver injuries of their own. Michael Bennett and Marlon Brown have both been shut down for the season with knee injuries. Both of them were the team's leading receivers at the time they went down with their injuries.
