Greenwood Has Break

Freshman defensive end Bobby Greenwood may be able to play in the Cotton Bowl, but he will have his hand in a cast. Greenwood suffered a broken hand in practice this week and underwent surgery. Following practice Thursday, Crimson Tide Head Football Coach Mike Shula said that doctors believe Greenwood will be able to play against Texas Tech.

Bobby Greenwood, a 6-6, 260-pound true freshman from Prattville, suffered the broken hand in practice Tuesday. Alabama did not practice Wednesday. The Crimson Tide returned to the practice field Thursday and Greenwood was held out of that work, and will not practice as Bama has its final Tuscaloosa work Friday morning.

Shula said that Greenwood would make the trip to Dallas for the Cotton Bowl and a final determination would be made next week. If Greenwood is able to play he will have his hand in a padded cast.

Greenwood was first team Freshman All-Southeastern Conference and second team Freshman All-America this season. He was in on 14 tackles (nine primary), including four for losses totaling 27 yards, and had three sacks for 22 yards in losses. He also had five quarterback hurries and broke up one pass.
