REPORTS: McCarron has tear in right knee (UPDATED)

Russ Mitchell with FoxSports.com has been hearing from sources that quarterback AJ McCarron has a slight tear in the meniscus in his right knee.

Mitchell tweeted several times regarding the situation.

AJ McCarron practiced fully on Monday, but did seem to be light on the injured knee, which had a brace over it. Head coach Nick Saban tried to downplay the injury in his Monday press conference. Saban will appear in front of the media again on Wednesday.

UPDATE, 3:03 P.M.: Jay Barker, former UA quarterback, responded to the report with the following.

UPDATE, 3:09 P.M.: AJ McCarron’s mother, Dee Dee Bonner, took to Twitter to debunk the reports of a torn meniscus to her son’s right knee.


Twitter Thursday: Western Kentucky

This is the first of a weekly feature coming to the blog, as every Thursday for the rest of football season (and maybe a little longer), we will go through the world of Twitter and see what select Alabama athletes have decided to share with the Internet.

Some may be complaining about fatigue, others will be just downright funny. Here we go.

First, we have BREAKING NEWS from safety HeSean ‘HaHa’ Clinton-Dix.

Don’t worry, though, teammate Anthony Steen beat you to the punch in the Sarcastic Reply department.

Also, center Barrett Jones was nice enough to let us have a small window into his celebration routine.

Quarterback AJ McCarron also opened up a little poll for his followers (all 22,000+ of them).

Which he ended up answering himself.

There was also a borderline unhealthy obsession with Jesse Williams this week, with numerous fans (and the occasional player) tweeting to him with Chuck Norris jokes about him. For example:

Word of advice: Williams (@ThaMonstar) is quite heavy on the retweets. So, if you want a RT from a ‘Bama football player….

Also, safety Vinnie Sunseri showed off a little brotherly love for his older brother Tino, who will start at QB for Pitt in the ESPN Thursday night game against Cincinnati.

And, as expected, the hype surrounding entering Bryant-Denny Stadium for the first time.
