The fifth-year senior had 64 yards rushing and 29 yards receiving in Alabama’s 24-22 win over Auburn.

He has turned in the twelfth 1,000-yard season for a running back in the Nick Saban era.

Robinson totals 1,016 yards on 207 carries with 14 touchdowns. He joins Glen Coffee, Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy, T.J. Yeldon, Derrick Henry, Damien Harris, and Najee Harris in achieving the feat.

Despite a win at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Robinson sustained an injury.

According to Coach Saban, the Tuscaloosa native pulled a muscle in his lower body. The team will see how he progresses in practice.

Alabama faces Georgia in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Jase McClellan and Roydell Williams are out for the season. Camar Wheaton, a freshman, has not been medically cleared to practice after sustaining an injury. Trey Sanders would be the starter against the Bulldogs if Robinson could not play.

Hopefully, he will progress smoothly in practice.
