Alabama RB Sanders in stable condition after car accident
Alabama running back Trey Sanders was hospitalized Friday with non-life-threatening injuries after a car accident.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said the redshirt freshman is in stable condition.
“We are in direct contact with his family and the physicians that are treating him as we continue to gather more information,” Saban said in a statement.
Further information about the accident and Sanders’ injuries was not immediately available.
Sanders rushed for a season-high 80 yards on 12 carries in No. 2 Alabama’s 41-0 win against Mississippi State last Saturday. He has rushed 30 times for 134 yards in four games this season.
A five-star recruit from Port Saint Joe, Fla., Sanders was ranked as the No. 1 running back and the No. 6 overall prospect in the nation in the Class of 2019 by the 247 Sports Composite.
