TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama learned a lot from its season-opening win over West Virginia on Saturday, but it came at a cost as the Crimson Tide lost a pair of veteran starters for a significant amount of time.
Jarrick Williams, a senior defensive back with 10 career starts, will miss four weeks with a fractured foot, and DeAndrew White, a senior starting wide receiver, will miss two weeks with a shoulder injury, coach Nick Saban announced Monday.
Who will be throwing the football to White's replacement at receiver, though, remains unclear.
"When I figure it out, I won't tell you," Saban said with a smile.
Sims started and played all but a few snaps against West Virginia, completing 73 percent of his pass attempts. Coker came on late, handing the ball off a few times before the game ended.
"I still don't hesitate to say there's a quarterback competition," Saban said.
