TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabamas running game has continued to roll along with considerable help from a running quarterback and a couple of freshmen backs.If starting tailback Damien Harris cant return from a sprained right ankle, freshmen Joshua Jacobs and B.J. Emmons could play even bigger roles for the top-ranked Crimson Tide Saturday night against Kentucky.Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday that Harris remains day to day after going down on the opening series against Kent State.Its nice knowing that if somebody like that was to go down, we have guys back there that can execute and do a really good job for us, Tide guard Ross Piersbacher said. It makes it fun for us to see those guys step up and play on a big stage like this and have that success.Harris has been the clear leader in the backfield, averaging 8.6 yards per carry and breaking long runs against USC and Mississippi. More surprising has been the pecking order behind him.Bo Scarbrough so far appears to have been passed up by Jacobs, the most lightly recruited of the group. Jacobs, not Scarbrough, was the guy who replaced Harris against Kent State and ran for 97 yards and his first two career touchdowns. Fellow freshman B.J. Emmons also has more rushing yards than Scarbrough, who sustained a bruised thigh against Kent State.The Tide had to replace the Heisman Trophy-winning Derrick Henry, who gobbled up most of the carries. Backup Kenyan Drake and Henry are both in the NFL.None of the returning backs had much experience but `Bama is still productive on the ground. Alabama ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in rushing, partly because Hurts is such a threat. The freshman quarterback is second on the team with 251 yards and has run for three touchdowns.Experience not talent was the big question mark facing the Tide backfield.Harris, Scarbrough and Emmons were each among the nations top running back prospects in their respective recruiting classes.I already knew once they got their chance or opportunity, they were going to play fast and hard, Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley said. Weve got great backs, all of them.Jacobs has made the most surprising ascent up the depth chart.The 5-foot-10, 204-pounder didnt get much interest from major college programs initially despite averaging 15.1 yards per carry and racking up 2,704 yards and 31 touchdowns as a senior at McLain High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Alabama wanted to sign another running back to build depth after losing Henry and Drake.We found Josh a little late in recruiting but we were happy that we were able to get him, Saban said. We were very impressed with him. Typically a guy that shows great maturity and understanding and is very instinctive as a football player, I think it shows up in his play and how he plays, and its certainly showed up in how hes developed to be able to play.Game notes Defensive back Tony Brown is eligible again after serving an NCAA suspension for the first four games, and being held out of the final two last season. The former five-star recruit is a special teams standout. In the secondary, hes going to add a whole lot of depth that we need just in case somebody goes down or whatever, cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick said. ... Receivers ArDarius Stewart and Robert Foster are both questionable with knee injuries, Saban said. Neither played against Kent State.---Onlne:APs college football site at Yeezy 350 V2 Antlia Pas Cher . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Yeezy 350 V2 Sesame Pas Cher .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Yeezy 350 v2 Acheter . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Yeezy 350 v2 Citrin Pas Cher . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. SAN DIEGO -- Linebacker Manti Teo will miss the rest of the season with a torn left Achilles tendon, becoming the third big-name player for the San Diego Chargers to be shelved by a major injury in as many games.Teo, a fourth-year linebacker from Notre Dame, was hurt in the first quarter of Sundays 26-22 loss at Indianapolis, in which the Chargers once again blew a fourth-quarter lead.His non-contact injury came a week after running back Danny Woodhead tore his right ACL in a home victory against Jacksonville. Wide receiver Keenan Allen suffered the same injury in a season-opening loss at Kansas City.Its another one of those guys you feel for, the way hes worked, what hes done, what he means to our organization, coach Mike McCoy said. Its a shame.Teo was hoping to have a big season. He was selected as one of the teams captains after leading the Chargers with 107 tackles last season.This is really tough, especially on me, fellow inside linebacker Denzel Perryman said. We were really close, thats like my brother on and off the field. Thats big bro. On the sideline he pretty much told me, `Its your team, take over. Its pretty much what you do.You lose one of your leaders on your defense, Perryman said. A guy like me, guys on the D-line, other linebackers, weve all got to step up, back into the secondary. Everybody has to step up. Thats a big loss on the defense, but we have to step up.Rookie Jatavis Brown filled in for Teo and forced a fumble by Andrew Luck that defensive tackle Caraun Reed returned 61 yards for a touchdown.ddddddddddddJatavis loves to play the game and you love his effort, the way he runs to the football, McCoy said. Theres some wow factor to him.Once again, the Chargers (1-2) failed to protect a late lead.I would say it was more self-inflicted, McCoy said. I mean, give them credit for the way they we played, but we missed a number of opportunities and didnt play as well against a good team.The Chargers have lost 10 of their last 11 road games dating to the final game of 2014.They host their former quarterback, Drew Brees, and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.The Chargers still dont know when theyll see their first-round draft pick, defensive end Joey Bosa, in action. Bosa missed all of training camp during a nasty contract dispute and then pulled a hamstring after signing. He went through his first padded practice last Wednesday, but was limited all week and missed his third straight game.When Joeys ready to go cut it loose and be Joey and play out there and help our team win games, hell be out there, McCoy said.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at and ' ' '
