Alabama football redshirt senior edge rusher Christopher Allen is “most likely out for the year” with a foot injury, coach Nick Saban said Monday.

“Chris Allen does have a foot fracture that will require surgery,” Saban said.

Allen suffered the injury in the first half Saturday in the 44-13 victory over Miami. He had to be carted off the field, and when he returned, he was using crutches and wearing a boot.

Before he left, though, he had three total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.

After the game, Saban said that Allen had a “pretty significant foot injury.”

With Allen out, sophomores Drew Sanders and Chris Braswell and freshman Dallas Turner each saw time. Sanders finished with six total tackles.
