Alabama receiver Julio Jones has a bruised knee but no other damage and could be back in a few days, coach Nick Saban said Monday.

Jones left the Florida International game following the opening drive. Running back Roy Upchurch also suffered a high ankle sprain early in that game and is questionable for Saturday's contest against North Texas, according to Saban.

If Upchurch can't go, get ready for another heavy dose of freshman Trent Richardson.

The Crimson Tide have lost redshirt freshman defensive end Damion Square for the season after Square tore his ACL in last week's game.
