TUSCALOOSA, AL (WSFA) -

Saturday’s game against LSU left three key Bama defensive players injured.

Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and Linebackers Mack Wilson and Shaun Dion Hamilton suffered injuries during the game.

During his weekly media press conference Monday, Saban gave an update on player injuries.

According to Saban, Fitzpatrick will not practice Monday but will hopefully return to practice on Tuesday. Wilson, however, suffered a foot injury and will be out for four to six weeks. Hamilton, who had a successful surgery on his knee, will be back in a few months.

Hamilton and Wilson, who both played at Carver High School in Montgomery, tweeted since the game.
