Alabama football CB Khyree Jackson suspended
Alabama defensive back Khyree Jackson has been suspended, coach Nick Saban confirmed Monday.
Saban did not elaborate on the reason for Jackson's suspension, when it began, or when he might return if at all. The Crimson Tide's reserve cornerback hasn't played since Alabama's 32-31 overtime loss at LSU on Nov. 5. Jackson has seen limited action this season as Alabama has primarily played Kool-Aid McKinstry, Terrion Arnold and Eli Ricks at the cornerback spot.
If Jackson were to be reinstated, there isn't much action left for him to return to. Alabama (9-2, 5-2 SEC) takes on archrival Auburn (5-6, 2-5 SEC) in a regular-season finale Saturday (CBS, 2:30 p.m.), after which UA will finish with a bowl appearance yet to be determined.
On the season, Jackson has made seven tackles, one for a loss, in nine games.
The junior college transfer, in his second season at Alabama, made his lone career start in Alabama's loss to Georgia in last year's College Football Playoff championship game.
