Urban Meyer previews key college football matchups Saturday on FOX

Ohio State Assistant Athletic Director Urban Meyer discusses key college football matchups this Saturday on FOX.

Alabama football coach Nick Saban elaborated on some of the details surrounding running back Trey Sanders’ car crash in which he suffered season-ending injuries.

Saban said Thursday during his radio show that Sanders was a passenger when the car he was traveling in was “T-boned.” Unfortunately, it was on Sanders’ side.

“He got T-boned in his car. He wasn’t driving, but they were just pulling out to go across an intersection and he got hit on his side,” Saban said via 24/7 Sports. “We’re thankful. He’s got some very serious injuries, but everything has worked out very well. I think he’ll make a full recovery, but this is probably gonna be a several month type thing. He had a hip injury, but not the same kind that Tua had, so there shouldn’t be any question about his recovery.

“We feel very fortunate.”

Sanders, a redshirt freshman, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and was in stable condition, Saban previously said, according to Saturday Down South. He was taken to the hospital via life flight, according to WMBB-TV.

Sanders is from Port St. Joe, Fla., and attended the IMG Academy before committing to Alabama. He received a medical redshirt after suffering a season-ending injury last season.

This season, he made appearances in games against Missouri, Texas A&M and Tennessee. He’s recorded 134 rushing yards on 30 carries. He has one catch for negative-2 yards. He has yet to score a touchdown in his college career.
