Tide's Dee Hart unlikely to play this season

Alabama coach Nick Saban said Wednesday that freshman running back Dee Hart was running again and making excellent progress after injuring his knee in July, but Saban said it would be a "real long shot" for Hart to come back and play this season.

"He's probably a good month away from being able to do all of the things he would need to do to come back and play football," Saban said.

Hart, who enrolled early and was very impressive during spring practice, was injured during offseason workouts. He'll redshirt this season and still be a freshman in 2012.
