Alabama head coach Nick Saban announced Wednesday that starting inside linebacker Trey DePriest will not play in the season opener against West Virginia due to an undisclosed NCAA infraction. Per ESPN:
DePriest, a senior who has started 26 games the past two seasons, is expected to return Week 2 against Florida Atlantic, Saban told reporters in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Wednesday.
Saban pointed out that since DePriest, a preseason All-SEC selection by both the media and coaches, was limited for much of fall camp with an injury, his backups were able to get plenty of reps.
"Even though this wasn't something we anticipated, it was something we were able to prepare for," he said.
Reuben Foster and Reggie Ragland will fill in for DePriest against West Virginia, Saban said. Dillon Lee and Shaun Dion Hamilton will be next in line.
