A smooth recovery for these Crimson Tide stars.

Alabama coach Nick Saban mentioned in Friday’s press conference that six players—Cam Robinson, Jonathan Allen, Eddie Jackson, Raheem Falkins, Shawn Jennings and Dakota Ball—could potentially miss “significant time” in practice this spring due to injuries.

The Tide returned to action for the first time since facing Clemson at University of Phoenix Stadium for the College Football National Championship Game back on Jan. 11.

Robinson and Allen played through pain during Alabama’s run to a national title last season.

Listed below are the six players that could miss the entire spring.

OT Cam Robinson- shoulder surgery

DE Jonathan Allen- shoulder surgery

DB Eddie Jackson- leg injury

WR Raheem Falkins- leg injury

TE Dakota Ball- foot injury

LB Shawn Jennings- knee injury (preexisting)

Alabama will off all of next week due to spring break, but it will resume practice on Monday, March 21.
