Matt Zenitz reports that Alabama junior CB Trevon Diggs will miss 4-to-6 months with a broken foot and will miss the rest of the 2018 season.
Diggs (6'2/199) was announced to have suffered the broken foot on Monday, and it's a substantial blow for the Crimson Tide. Alabama will have five-star freshman Patrick Surtain to replace the junior, but this is one area where the Crimson Tide don't have a ton of depth. We should see Diggs back with Alabama before the start of spring camp, but it does appear that his 2018 campaign is over. Oct 10 - 11:39 AM

Alabama junior CB Trevon Diggs will be out indefinitely after breaking his foot in Saturday's win over Arkansas.

Diggs (6'2/199) will be replaced in the starting lineup by five-star freshman Patrick Surtain, who has already seen his fair share of playing time through the first month-plus of the campaign. Tide HC Nick Saban voiced some concern over the team's depth at corner when announcing Diggs' broken foot on Monday, so any further injury in the secondary could start to wear on the team by degrees. Alabama plays host to Missouri on Saturday.

Alabama junior DB Trevon Diggs "limped off" the field during the spring game.

Diggs walked off under his own power which is encouraging. He had just returned to spring practice from an ankle injury two weeks prior and ankle injuries are one of the easiest to re-aggravate and then subsequently linger. Despite the injury, HC Nick Saban said Diggs "had a really good spring." He will likely be one of Alabama's starters in 2018.

Alabama junior DB Trevon Diggs (ankle) returned to spring practice on Monday.

Diggs has been held out of practice with the ankle injury, but it sounds like it was mostly precautionary, as there's no way the Crimson Tide would risk further injury if he couldn't go. He's expected to compete for one of the starting spots in the depleted Alabama secondary, and should be the punt returner to begin the season as well.

Alabama sophomore DB and punt returner Trevon Diggs will likely be out a week or two with a foot ailment but avoided major injury.

Beat writer Matt Zanitz suggests freshman receiver Henry Ruggs will take over as the school's main punt returner. Alabama faces Texas A&M next.

Alabama sophomore DB Trevon Diggs (foot) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Diggs (6'1/182) was called "very" questionable by Alabama HC Nick Saban. He injured the foot in the second quarter of the Tide's 66-3 shellacking of Ole Miss on Saturday, and was later seen wearing a walking boot.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that the team is exclusively developing sophomore Trevon Diggs at corner in camp.

Diggs (6'1/182) saw time as a safety, receiver and a kick-returner last season. The Tide were using him solely as a corner in spring ball and all indications from preseason camp are that this is the role he will be playing during the coming season. Said Saban, "We're really focused on trying to develop him as a corner on our team, so we're not going down that (offensive) road right now." Coming out of high school as part of the 2016 class, Diggs ranked as a four-star athlete. Part of the reason that Alabama likes him on the defensive side of the ball at this juncture is that the team has a number of young options at wide receiver already.

SEC Country's Marq Burnett notes that Alabama sophomore Trevon Diggs was working exclusively at corner this spring.

Diggs (6'1/182) was signed out of high school as a four-star "athlete" and he fit that designation snugly enough last season, working as a safety, a receiver and a kick returner as a true freshman. It looks increasingly like the versatile playmaker will be settling into a defensive role during the coming season. This offseason, he earned a start at corner with the first-team defense during the team's annual A-Day spring game. Burnett sees him as the No. 17 most important player for Alabama.

Alabama signed four-star ATH Trevon Diggs.

Diggs bypassed the hoopla of National Signing Day by inking his NLI in late January. The 6-foot-1, 182-pounder hails from Gaithersberg, Maryland, and ESPN 300 sees him projecting out to either safety or wide receiver, depending on how the Tide feel like employing their latest four-star weapon. He checks in at No. 125 on ESPN's list, with the outlet writing that Diggs' tools "provide for tremendous clay to mold."
