Alabama redshirt junior C Ryan Kelly is doubtful for Saturday's game against Texas A&M with an ankle injury.

Kelly exited the game against Ole Miss and has been limited since. The team moves from a veteran center to a redshirt freshman in Bradley Bozeman. After starting the season well on defense, A&M has backtracked in the last few weeks. Alabama's offense has done the same, however.

Alabama redshirt junior C Ryan Kelly will miss a few weeks due to a sprained ankle.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban announced the news two days after Kelly exited Alabama's loss to Ole Miss in the fourth quarter. The preseason Rimington candidate is likely to be replaced in the starting lineup by backup Bradley Bozeman. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote in August that Kelly has the combination of "quickness, power and balance" necessary to play in the NFL.

Alabama redshirt junior C Ryan Kelly exited Saturday's game against Ole Miss with an unknown injury.

Kelly's backup Bradley Bozeman may have been the cause of a false start penalty early in the fourth quarter when Blake Sims was screaming and jumping for a snap that never came. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote in August that Kelly has the combination of "quickness, power and balance" necessary to play in the NFL. We'll update you on the Rimington candidate's status when the team passes along an update.

Alabama redshirt junior C Ryan Kelly has the combination of "quickness, power and balance" necessary to play in the NFL, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Kelly took over for Barrett Jones, the 2012 winner of the Rimington Trophy as the nation's best center, and performed well, showing the combination of quickness, power and balance necessary to one day join his former teammate in the NFL," Rang wrote. "Kelly missed four games last season due to recurring knee pain and has two more years of eligibility remaining." Kelly is a Rimington candidate and will help open holes for T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake this fall.

Alabama redshirt sophomore C Ryan Kelly has been named to the Rimington watch list despite having zero career starts.

Kelly is obviously taking the place of savvy and versatile offensive lineman Barrett Jones. Kelly did see action in nine games in 2012, his only season of on-field collegiate experience. The Crimson Tide lost talent along their offensive line, but we expect them to reload.
