Nick Saban gives update on DL Christian Barmore and safeties coach Charles Kelly

Alabama’s 38-19 victory of Missouri last Saturday came without one of its most talented players on the defensive front.

Redshirt sophomore Christian Barmore had missed the game and some practice time prior to it with a knee injury he suffered during fall camp.

On Wednesday during his press conference head coach Nick Saban provided some positive news in terms of Barmore’s status for Saturday’s matchup with the Texas A&M Aggies.

“We’re hopeful that he’ll be able to contribute during the game,” said Saban when asked about Barmore’s health.

Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher noted during his teleconference on Wednesday that the team has prepared to face Barmore upfront.
