The "Duron Carter watch” appears to be over…for this season.
After a month of speculation, which at times felt like years, Alabama wide receiver Duron Carter will likely be forced to redshirt and miss the entire 2011 season.
"There is one piece of information we did not receive, have not received, and may not ever receive," head coach Nick Saban said. "So as of right now, he (Carter) has to be here a year in residence before he's eligible. He'll still have two years to play after that but as of right now; it doesn't look like he will be eligible for this season."
Carter, who has been involved in a myriad of twists and turns regarding his academic status, will continue to practice with the scout team for the remainder of the season.
