Bama's injury list growing longer

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The injury list is getting long for No. 4 Alabama's game with North Texas.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Monday tailback Roy Upchurch and wide receiver Julio Jones are day-to-day, and their status is uncertain for Saturday's game.

Upchurch sustained a high ankle sprain early in his first career start. Saban said it could take a few days or a few weeks for him to get back.

Jones has a bruised right knee but tests found no significant damage, Saban said.

He said redshirt freshman linebacker Damion Square is out for the season with a torn knee ligament.

North Texas coach Todd Dodge said his son and quarterback Riley Dodge will miss the game with a separated shoulder. Nathan Tune will start.
