Gatorade, high temperatures and Alabama practice were on Saturday’s menu, as the Crimson Tide took to Thomas-Drew Field for day three of fall camp.

Sophomore left tackle Cam Robinson was taken off the field, after a foot injury.

Robinson, 6-foot-6, 326 pounds, is coming off a stellar freshman year, in which he blocked for 206.6 rushing yards per game and allowed three sacks in 861 snaps.

Aaron Suttles, Alabama football beat writer for Tuscaloosa News, was the first to report on the story. The next was Drew DeArmond of ESPN 99.7 The Zone, who released a statement via Twitter. Robinson played through injuries in 2014, yet Alabama doesn’t want to lose its All-American left tackle.

Senior center Ryan Kelly would be the next option at left tackle; however, he has little experience. True freshman Lester Cotton has a lot of upside, but merely just a freshman.

Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban hasn’t released anything on Robinson, but more information will be given during Sunday’s fan day activities. A few sources, including DeArmond have stated that the injury isn’t serious.
