Alabama coach Nick Saban addressed the media after practice on Saturday and mentioned that star running back Bo Scarbrough had missed the last two practices. However, it doesn’t sound too serious and more like a precautionary measure for the coach and the player. Here’s what Saban said via SEC Country:
“Bo has been ill for two days,” Saban said. “Very, pretty sick. I’m talking about ill enough to be in bed. We don’t think this is a serious illness or anything like that, but it is something that we didn’t think it would be good for him not to be in a position where he could be resting.”
Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like the running back is in any real danger of missing much more practice or losing his spot as a starter.
Scarbrough was having a spectacular postseason in 2016 when he ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns against Florida in the SEC Championship Game, rushed for 180 yards and two touchdowns against Washington in the National Semifinal and then had 93 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson in the title game before breaking his leg in the third quarter.
