Alabama G Ross Pierschbacher has high ankle sprain, could miss Iron Bowl

Alabama G Ross Pierschbacher has high ankle sprain, could miss Iron Bowl”

The Bulldogs then took the ball straight down the field, running up an 11-play, 73-yard drive that chewed up almost six-and-a-half minutes of the first half clock, punctuated by Williams' second rushing touchdown, this time from five yards out. J.C. Hassenauer ended up filling in for him at left guard.

Upon getting news on Pierschbacher having a high ankle sprain, Nick Saban said the talented 303-pounder will be out for this week's meeting versus Mercer at home.

"I think Ross (Pierschbacher) will be out, for sure, for this game and then probably a medical decision after that as to where he is", Saban said.

Although it has been able to withstand injuries on defense, Pierschbacher is one of Alabama's veterans up front. The victor will face Georgia for the conference championship game in Atlanta on December 2. Hurts completed 10 of 19 passes for 242 yards and a touchdown.

Auburn was impressive in a 40-17 rout of No. 1 Georgia, the largest win over a team ranked No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings to date. The Tide responded, which was a common theme in the game, going 10 plays and 82 yards, including a huge fourth-down conversion by Jalen Hurts, who scrambled for 13 yards on fourth-and-4 to keep the drive alive, which was finished off by Damien Harris running into the end-zone from 17 yards out to tie the game at 24.

Like Pierschbacher, the Minnesota native arrived in Tuscaloosa as a four-star recruit and one of the nation's top center prospects in 2014. Hassenauer was listed at No. 190 on the ESPN 300 recruiting database and has played a lot of football at reserve center/guard since his arrival.
