VIDEO: Nick Saban Addresses Raekwon Davis’ Health
Alabama defensive lineman Raekwon Davis is recovering from a gunshot wound he suffered early Sunday morning and head coach Nick Saban touched on his status during Monday's press conference.
“With the Raekwon Davis situation, we’re still gathering information," Saban said. "It doesn’t seem like our players were guilty of anything other than being out late, which doesn’t make me happy. He has been released from the hospital. He’s here, and he’s getting treatment. He’ll be day-to-day, and we’re still gathering information. What his status is moving forward will be a medical decision, not something that we can really comment on here right now.”
The sophomore was struck in the leg by a stray bullet while in the parking lot of Bar 17 on the west side of Tuscaloosa.
"I'm always concerned about our players being out, where they're out, who they're with, who's the alpha dog to provide the leadership to get out of that situation somewhere earlier in the evening where it would have never would have happened.
"So I'm always concerned about player safety. I'm very concerned about this player's safety. I'm very concerned about this player's well-being and getting healthy and in the future. But if they'd have followed my advice, they never would have been there."
Davis was listed as a co-starter at defensive on the first official depth chart released by Alabama on Monday, but his status for Saturday's game against Florida State remains questionable.
