Bama Backup RB Fowler Likely Out For Season

It looks like Alabama will be without junior running back Jalston Fowler for the rest of the season.  The backup tailback/fullback/H-back will have surgery on his left knee following an injury Saturday against Western Kentucky (which is about all these types of meaningless games are good for — injuries).

According to Nick Saban:


“Jalston’s been a great player in the program — a really good special teams guy.  A great backup player for us.  A really good attitude guy.  Lots of character.  Really good competitor.  I know he feels badly.  We feel badly, too, for him that he can’t be a part and be able to contribute to our team this year.”


According to The Birmingham News, Fowler was “used extensively” as the Tide’s fullback in the I-formation.  On the season he had 11 carries for 85 yards.
