Crimson Tide defensive back Tony Brown’s suspension is expected to be reduced from six to four games, according to Matt Zenitz of AL.com.
Brown was first suspended in December and sent home just prior to the Cotton Bowl and replaced by Maurice Smith.
When asked back in March about the status of Brown coach Nick Saban said, “He is facing some suspensions. When I get the final data on that, I’ll let you know.”
Brown was a highly touted five-star recruit coming out of Beaumont, TX, and was part of a very talented number one ranked recruiting class in 2014.
Many expected Brown to play a big role with the Tide prior to the suspension and he was expected to compete for a starting position as the Tide’s nickel or dime back.
Brown who is a two sport athlete, reached the NCAA Track and Field Final this year and was used heavily in special teams last season due to his blazing speed.
With the reduction of his suspension Brown will be eligible to return to the field on October 1st inside Bryant-Denny Stadium against the Kentucky Wildcats
