Alabama WR Jones has a broken hand

Alabama didn’t just lose a football game on Saturday against South Carolina. The Crimson Tide also lost one of their best players.

Wide receiver Julio Jones broke his hand against the Gamecocks and his status for the Tide’s game Saturday against Mississippi is uncertain.

Head coach Nick Saban said Monday that Jones was injured in the first half of the 35-21 loss in Columbia and had a plate and screw inserted.

Saban said whether Jones can return for Saturday’s game in Tuscaloosa will be based on his pain tolerance. Jones did not play after the injury this past Saturday.

Jones leads the team with 32 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns.
