Crimson Notes 9/13/10

After his outstanding performance against Penn State, Alabama running back Trent Richardson has been named the SEC
co-Offensive Player of the Week.

Richardson will share the honor with South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore. The talented Carolina freshman led the Gamecocks to victory over the Georgia Bulldogs.

On the injury front, Tide running back Mark Ingram will return to practice this week.

The reigning Heisman winner will see limited reps in practice, but only as a precaution.

How much Ingram will play is still very much in question, but the Tide running back will make his 2010 debut on Saturday afternoon at Duke.

Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw is still recovering from a sprained ankle. Upshaw suffered the injury against San Jose State and saw very little action against Penn State.

Nick Saban said he didn’t want to risk further injury to Upshaw, so he was very restricted against the Nittany Lions.

Linebacker Chris Jordan (shoulder) and left tackle James Carpenter (ankle) were injured in the contest against Penn State, but are expected to practice this week.

Both Jordan and Carpenter will be “limited” for a couple of days, but should be ready to play on Saturday.

In what should be “common knowledge” at this stage, Marcell Dareus will return to action this weekend. The two-game suspension ordered by the NCAA has been served and Dareus is now eligible.
