Alabama offensive guard Alphonse Taylor had a tumultuous offseason with charges brought against him only to see them dropped pretty late in July. Taylor was indefinitely suspended while he was charged with a DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.
Taylor reportedly blew a sobering 0.00 on two breathalyzer tests and called the police himself to notify them of his accident. He was reinstated to the team and was allowed to practice, but was still suspended for the USC game, which Alabama won 52-6 anyway.
Nick Saban confirmed that Taylor was only suspended for the season opener in Dallas, but will be available for the game against Western Kentucky next week.
Taylor has played in 35 games during his time in Tuscaloosa, starting 17 of those contests. 15 of his starts came at right guard during the Tide's run to the title in 2015.
