Report: Alabama Running Back T.J. Yeldon Suspended For First Quarter Saturday

Citing a source “close to the situation,” the Anniston Star says Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon will be suspended for the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Colorado State.    The reason?  His unsportsmanlike penalty in the Crimson Tide’s 49-42 win over Texas A&M last week.

The penalty came after a four-yard touchdown run near the end of the second quarter.  After scoring, Yeldon rubbed his fingers together in a money sign and then made a double throat-slashing gesture.

“I want to apologize to everyone for my selfish actions on Saturday,” Yeldon said in a statement released Monday.

Yeldon is the Tide’s leading rusher 224 yards and two touchdowns on 42 carries this year. With or without Yeldon, Alabama is a huge favorite against Colorado State.  Here’s our game previews posted earlier this afternoon.

I think it's refreshing to see Coach Saban suspend a player - even if it is for one quarter - for doing something that small. It makes what the LSU running back did look a lot bigger. And, it pales in comparison to what Johnny Manziel did.

Funny that it took a whole week to suspend him.  Why let him play in the 2nd half if that penalty was so bad?

Isn't it interesting how different programs react to immature on field behavior.

@the_voice Do you really think he'd be suspended if a critical game were next? Say, maybe LSU? Not on your life. Saban is giving him a short rest while he gets to play the sanctimonious card.
