Alabama linebacker Trey DePriest will miss the rest of spring practice with a stress fracture in his right foot.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says DePriest aggravated the injury during last weekend's scrimmage. DePriest had a cast on his foot while riding an exercise bike during Wednesday's practice.
Saban says DePriest could have finished the spring but they ''just decided to go ahead and fix it before it got bad.''
DePriest started 12 games last season and was second on the team with 56 tackles. Reggie Ragland saw some action in 10 games as a freshman. Dillon Lee and Ryan Anderson are working at both inside and outside linebacker.
Saban says noseguard Wilson Love sustained a concussion on Monday and needs to get medically cleared before he can return.

LEARN FROM THE BEST
NFL coaches have been asking Nick Saban for his advice on stopping the read option offense, which has become popular in the NFL.
Alabama is coming off something of a “whew” weekend. Things looked gloomy as the Crimson Tide lost the first two games of a series against Arkansas, but Bama rebounded to take the third game, maintain “touch” with LSU in the Southeastern Conference Western Division, and start this week on a winning note.
A few weeks ago new Arkansas Football Coach Bret Bielema had some Alabama fans thinking John L. Smith was back leading the Razorbacks. Crimson Tide fans thought it was lunacy that Bielema expected to come into the Southeastern Conference and take over the top spot from the Crimson Tide.
Nick Saban was an utter failure as an NFL coach, but teams have been running to Tuscaloosa to get advice from the king of college football on how to stop the read option according to Pro Football Talk.
Saban was on ESPN earlier and spoke about his many visitors.
“Several NFL coaches have come to visit this year to say, ‘How do you stop these guys?’ Because they’re not accustomed...
