In the latest release of the Associated Press Top 25 Poll, Alabama remains in the top spot.

The Crimson Tide remain in the top spot after their demolishing of Mercer on Saturday, and received 58-of-61 first-place votes. The other three votes went to Miami (FL.), who remain second overall. The biggest riser is LSU, who move up two spots from 21 to 19.

Alabama freshman Tua Tagovailoa completed 7 of 11 passes for 85 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 56-0 win over Mercer on Saturday.

Tua hasn't come close to replacing Jalen Hurts this season, but the backup quarterback will always be the most popular person in town when a team loses. Tua threw two great endzone fades that were converted by diving and leaping receivers.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarborugh rushed for 54 yards on five carries in the school's victory over Mercer on Saturday.

This includes a 44-yard run. Scarbrough is a big man who can rumble, and his long run displayed those skills after contact. His draft process, including the athletic testing profile, will be one to watch.

Alabama junior WR Calvin Ridley caught three passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the school's Saturday win over Mercer.

This was all accomplished in the first half, as the Crimson Tide sat their starters in the final two quarters. Maybe it is the Alabama uniform, but Ridley looks quite similar to Amari Cooper after the catch. He has a chance of being the first receiver off the board this spring.

Alabama sophomore QB Jalen Hurts completed all seven of his attempts for 180 yards and three touchdowns in the school's win over Mercer on Saturday.

Hurts was pulled from the game early, as Alabama (expectedly) is dominating Mercer. Some teams play cupcakes in September and October, Alabama is playing one in mid-November just before the Iron Bowl against Auburn. This is just the third game that hurts has thrown over two touchdowns this season.

Alabama freshman DL/DE LaBryan Ray broke a bone in his foot during practice on Thursday.

He already had surgery on Friday. Bryan played in a handful of games this season after being one of the top recruits in the country. He played a pivotal backup role when Alabama was shorthanded at the position.

Of Alabama junior WR Calvin Ridley, ESPN's Mel Kiper predicted that "he'll be a mid-first-round pick in April."

"At 6-foot-1, 188 pounds, he's a tremendous weapon," Kiper wrote. "Ridley is explosive in and out of cuts, has good hands and is excellent after the catch. And he's not afraid to go across the middle and make a play." Ridley has been held to a 49-755-2 line this year, mostly because of Alabama's run-first offense. He's showed increased explosion, averaging 15.4 YPC, well above his averages from the last two years (11.7 and 10.7 YPC). Ridley posted a 72-769-7 line last season and a 89-1045-7 line as a true freshman in 2015.

After initially ruling out redshirt junior LB Christian Miller for the season with a biceps injury, Alabama head coach Nick Saban says Miller might return this year.

Miller is now in the "functional stage" of his rehab, but Saban made it known that Miller's return is dependent on the medical staff. Miller was injured in early September and his return would really help Alabama's front seven talent.

Alabama redshirt junior LG Ross Pierschbacher (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

Pierschbacher is expected to miss 2-4 weeks of action due to a high ankle sprain, so it's no huge surprise that he sat out practice on Wednesday (he was sporting a boot). He initially suffered the injury in the first quarter of Saturday's win over Mississippi State, with J.C. Hassenauer taking over in his place after he exited stage left. Pierschbacher will almost certainly miss this weekend's upcoming game against Mercer, but it's not completely out of the realm of possibility that he could return against Auburn the week after.

Alabmaa junior DB Minkah Fitzparick was named a finalist for the Bronco Nagurski Award.

Fitzpatrick (6`1/195) is one of five finalists for the award, which is handed out annually to the top defensive player in the country regardless of position. In 10 games this season, the junior has registered 44 tackles (5.5 for loss), an interception and five passes defensed. Fitzpatrick is currently day-to-day with a hamstring injury sustained against LSU at the beginning of November.

Alabama junior DB Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring) was not seen during the open media window of Wednesday's practice.

This was also the case on Tuesday, though Tidesports.com's Ben Jones passes along that Fitzpatrick was spotted walking through the building in a black, non-contact jersey on Wednesday -- it's possible that the Tide simply are not showing him during the open window. Fitzpatrick (6'1/195) initially injured his hamstring against LSU two weekends ago. It was not enough to keep him out of action in Saturday's win over Mississippi State. While Tide HC Nick Saban termed the junior as "day-to-day," make no mistake, if there's any concern beyond the cursory, Fitzpatrick will not be playing much against Mercer on Saturday.
Nov 15 - 6:02 PM

Alabama senior WR Cam Sims was icing his hand on Monday.

This doesn't appear to be a major concern, as Sims was not sporting a bandage or brace of any variety during practice on Tuesday. We expect him to be able to play against Mercer this coming weekend. The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder has caught 11 passes for 173 yards across nine games this season.

Alabama junior DB Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring) was not seen during the open media window of Tuesday's practice.

Fitzpatrick is day-to-day with a hamstring injury initially sustained against LSU two weekends ago. Despite the nagging health concern, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder was able to play in this past weekend's win over Mississippi State -- he registered six tackles in the contest -- and looks like he'll be able to play through the hamstring issue so long as he does not make it worse. Alabama hosts Mercer this weekend, essentially providing them a free day to rest Fitzpatrick if need be.

Alabama redshirt junior LG Ross Pierschbacher is expected to miss 2-4 weeks due to a high ankle sprain.

Pierschbacher went down with the injury in the first quarter against Mississippi State and J.C. Hassenauer replaced him in the starting lineup. Alabama has a cupcake game against Mercer, but the biggest game of the season looms after that when the Crimson Tide will face Auburn.

Alabama junior WR Calvin Ridley caught five passes for 171 yards in Saturday's 31-24 win over Mississippi State.

Ridley did not find the end zone in this one, but it was his best overall game of the season in terms of his impact on the final score. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior was able to consistently shake free of tackle attempts after he caught the ball and made a 31-yard catch on a crucial 3rd & 15 on Alabama's final drive of the game with the score tied at 24-24. This was Ridley's first game of 100 yards receiving on the year and a fine reminder of his next-level talent.
