TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Alabama defensive end LaBryan Ray will be sidelined for at least one game with a foot injury.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Monday that Ray is undergoing more testing and it’s “undetermined how long” he’ll be out. He says Ray won’t play in the second-ranked Tide’s game against Southern Miss on Saturday.

Ray was injured in the road win over South Carolina. Freshman Justin Eboigbe is his backup. If he starts, that would give Alabama four freshman defensive starters.

Ray is a former five-star recruit who has nine tackles, a sack and a forced fumble through three games. The Tide defense had already lost starting inside linebackers Dylan Moses and Joshua McMillon possibly for the season.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
