Green Suspended

Robby Green, the University of Alabama defensive back, has been suspended for violation of team rules.

While we don't know what rule was broken he will be kept out of spring practice.

Green played in all 14 games last year for the tide and had 33 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception. In the 14 games he made 6 starts.

This upcoming year, he would be one of the top challengers for the starting safety on defense.

In a statement made on Thursday coach Saban said of the situation,

"There is a situation with Robby and we are currently in the process of determining the facts,"

"To make any kind of announcement on his playing status at this time is completely premature and it is not appropriate to do so until we have a chance to go through due process for Robby and his family. If there is a change in his current status, we will make an announcement once a final determination is made."

Depending on the severity of the crime, this should definitely shake up spring practice and open the door for some solid competition for the open spots on defense, especially in the secondary.
