Alabama starting tight end to miss several weeks with an injury

Cedric Mason - Touchdown Alabama Magazine

He did not appear like something was bothering him and his name was not mentioned in the list of injuries Nick Saban provided after Alabama’s win over Arkansas; however, Miller Forristall sustained a medical mishap on last week. 

Per a report from Aaron Suttles of The Athletic, the junior tight end will miss several weeks with an injury.

While no one knows what he hurt, Forristall has three touchdown catches on the season and is starting to become a better blocker in the run game. He helped Najee Harris score two rushing touchdowns and blocked for Harris and Brian Robinson to average over five yards per carry. 

A native Georgian, Forristall suffered a serious knee injury in 2017 and missed the rest of the season after three games.

He was finally starting to be involved more offensively, prior to the Arkansas game, and hopefully he will have a smooth recovery.
