Alabama Vs. Penn State: Duron Carter Still Not Cleared To Play For Crimson Tide

Alabama wide receiever Duron Carter is still not cleared to play for the Crimson Tide, and may miss Saturday's showdown with Penn State as a result.

Carter, an Ohio State and junior college transfer whose admission to Alabama was delayed until August 29 by transcript issues, is still waiting on the proper documentation to prove his eligibility. In a statement, Alabama said it is "awaiting documents necessary for Carter to be certified." It is not clear if those documents will be received before Alabama and Penn State take the field at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

Carter was sparingly used in his freshman season at Ohio State, catching just 13 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown. Academic issues forced Carter to withdraw from Ohio State in 2010 and head to Coffeyville Community College in Kansas.

Carter is the son of NFL wide receiver and ESPN analyst Cris Carter.
