Alabama's Saban expects Cooper, Belue to play

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama is expecting to get most of its injured players back for the Mississippi game.

 

The top-ranked Crimson Tide held several starters out of a win over Colorado State while they were nursing injuries.

 

Coach Nick Saban said Monday all but backup safety Nick Perry appear ready to participate in preparations for the 21st-ranked Rebels. Perry has a shoulder injury.

 

Wide receiver Amari Cooper and Deion Belue both sat out the 31-6 win over Colorado State with toe injuries. Guard Anthony Steen missed the game with a headache. Wide receiver Kevin Norwood also sat out with an unspecified injury.

 

Safety Jarrick Williams had been having problems after getting poked in the eye against Texas A&M.

 

All that left freshman Eddie Jackson and sophomore Bradley Sylve starting at cornerback.
