ESPN is reporting that Alabama defensive back Eddie Jackson tore his ACL during a scrimmage on Saturday and will miss the rest of spring practice.
quote:

Alabama coach Nick Saban said Jackson hurt his knee in a "noncontact" situation where he jumped for the football and "came down funny."

"Eddie was having a great spring and [was] probably our best corner, most consistent," Saban said.

It is expected to take Jackson about five months to recover, which could cause him to miss preseason camp. If Jackson is unable to return for the regular season, a medical redshirt is possible.
As a true freshman last season, Jackson started four games and appeared in seven contests, racking up 19 tackles, an interception and two fumble recoveries.
