Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday that linebacker Jerrell Harris' suspension would last six games, meaning he won't be back until the South Carolina game on Oct. 17.

Harris' suspension is tied to NCAA impermissible benefits, a ruling that Saban said came down last Friday.

With linebacker Dont'a Hightower out for the season with a knee injury, Harris becomes a little more valuable to the defense. Saban said he would be a candidate to replace Hightower when he returns.
