TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - The Alabama Football Program has no plans for any players to be sidelined this weekend due to COVID-19 after implementing a rigorous testing policy.

The program began by testing three times a week, but now, it tests daily, making testing a part of the Alabama “process.”

Just days away from the delayed Alabama football season, Coach Saban is praising the team, staff and medical officials for a coordinated effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 impacting play.

Coach says players attended Zoom meetings with medical doctors with a full education on how to manage their personal bubble and stay game ready.

“It’s an everyday, 24/7 process to manage your personal bubble and I think the education process and things we’ve done internally from a medical staff standpoint have really gone well,” said Coach Saban.
