Alabama junior OL Lester Cotton (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Sugar Bowl.

Cotton (6'4/319) injured his knee when he was inadvertently taken down while engaged in a block during the second half of Monday's tilt against Clemson. He was able to walk off mostly under his own power and was then taken to the locker room. Should Alabama win the Sugar Bowl -- and that's looking increasingly likely -- we would expect an injury update on the junior from the team during the National Championship Game practice week.
