Terry Grant & Travis Sikes Leave the Team


After practice Friday, coach Nick Saban announced that two fifth year seniors will be leaving the team. The two are running back Terry Grant and wide receiver Travis Sikes.

When asked of Grant leaving, Saban said," "He decided because of injuries, he's already graduated, that he would not come back.”

Grant was most known for his 2007 campaign when he started in 13 games and had 891 yards on the season and rushing for 8 touchdowns. However, his carries were cut with the arrival of Glen Coffee and others such as Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.

Travis Sikes, who would have also been a fifth year senior this season, has also graduated and decided to leave. He also saw most of his playing time in 2007, and last played last season against Chattanooga.

Best of Luck to the both of them.
