Alabama head coach Nick Saban has suspended linebacker Xzavier Dickson and running back Alvin Kamara for the Crimson Tide’s game against Oklahoma.

Dickson had 13 tackles – 6 solo – in 10 games this year. He did not play against either Tennessee or Kentucky.

Freshman Kamara did not play at all for the  Tide this year.

BOTTOM LINE: Cecil Hurt, a long-time writer for the Tuscaloosa News, said that it’s possible that Kamara may not return for the Tide. Dickson, however, splits time with Denzel Devall at linebaker. Devall had 12 solo tackles, assisted with 14, and had 26 total tackles last year. In other words, Devall will be doing the bulk of the work now against an Oklahoma rushing game that’ll look to smash the ball down the Tide’s throats.
