Alabama football had several players in street clothes last week against Mississippi State.

Jaheim Oatis, a native Mississippian, did not play against the Bulldogs. The freshman defensive lineman has been a force for the Crimson Tide in his first year. He has 20 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a sack, two quarterback pressures, and a pass breakup.

No one knows what his injury is as Nick Saban did not discuss it in the postgame presser. However, Saban did tell reporters that Oatis and DJ Dale are both ‘day-to-day.’ The Tide is hopeful to have one of the two back soon, but it is too early to tell now.

Oatis, who has endured an incredible body transformation, told Alabama fans on Twitter ‘he will be right back.’

The Tide will need the former four-star in the middle at nose tackle if it wants to run the table.
