Hate to hear that.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
hope he's ready for the next game
Maybe he's not in the top 85? Can't only 85 players dress and travel with the team?
Didn't seem to be an issue with him traveling to Mizzou. I can only imagine one thing that changed between that trip and this one.
^^^ My sentiments, exactly.
It was pretty obvious to me he hurt himself on the tackle so hopefully it's just Saban making an example for his stupid play.
When was it obvious? When he played the next couple snaps or when he was smiling as he jogged off the field?
He was definitely trying to hide it. But you could tell he hurt his back on the play. Nothing severe like you said.
just look at how contorted his body is. The play was a dumb move on his part just because of the danger it put himself in let alone the rb.
"You don't always get what you want, but you always get what you deserve"
Exactly, was laughing here at the folks that think he was suspended for the suplex, oh brother.
Oh, immediately when he got up from the tackle. Probably a pulled muscle in his back. I didn't say his leg fell off. He couldn't even get off the line the next two plays and then his helmet fell off so he left the game.
I find it interesting how many posters here declared Fanning's blunder a non-issue.
"Saban said Monday that LaMichael Fanning showed 'very, very poor judgement' when he tackled Missouri running back Russell Hansbrough by picking him up and slamming him into the turf... Fanning was flagged for a personal foul penalty for the move."
'"I think this is a young player who... makes very, very poor judgment on making that play,' Saban said. “It’s something that we don’t condone here. It’s not how we want our players to play. I think he understands that what he did was not done in the right way in terms of being a strong competitor, and we are managing internally things for him to do to make better choices and decisions in the future.'"
Correct. He was held out of drills on Wednesday and was really favoring his left leg.

Don't be an idiot. He is on double secret probation
This. This was NOT disciplinary. In fact, I happen to know that while his, ahem, "Technique" was "Frowned upon" by Saban, his tenacity was praised. He was working hard while he had the opportunity to be on the field. Give the kid a break.
I mean, what did you want Saban to say? "We teach that technique in practice and in fact, bring in professional wrestlers to train our players to administer the suplex." Fanning was making the most of his opportunity to be in the game and got carried away in the heat of the moment. Give me a break bro.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
It was bent under him awkwardly on that tackle.
I thought he tore up his knee when I saw it live. He was limping badly the next few plays but was trying not to show it. He's very lucky he didn't suffer a major injury.
