Alabama coach Nick Saban says three players suspended this week will not play the rest of this season, adding that their status beyond that is uncertain.
Starting left guard Deonte Brown, tight end Kedrick James and offensive lineman Elliot Baker didn’t make the trip to Miami for Saturday’s game against Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff semifinal game.
At media day for the game Thursday, Saban said the players committed NCAA violations by making poor decisions. He did not elaborate.


Three Alabama players have been suspended for violating team rules, per a statement from head coach Nick Saban.

Deonte Brown,  Elliott Baker and Kedrick James have been suspended for the Orange Bowl. 

Deonte Brown has started five of the Tide’s last six games at left guard.

Both Baker and James are backups.
