Alabama Spring Football: No Eddie Lacy, Duron Carter, Arie Kouandjio

The Alabama Crimson Tide will be without running back Eddie Lacy and wide receiver Duron Carter during spring practice, Nick Saban announced Tuesday. Lacy is out while recovering from turf toe surgery, and offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio. Carter remains suspended, as do fellow receivers Michael Bowman and Ronald Carswell.

Lacy is expected to take over the starting job in the wake of Trent Richardson, which is a very powerful wake indeed. He obtained 805 yards from scrimmage last year despite missing time due to injury. Jalston Fowler and Dee Hart, who was injured for the 2011 campaign, should fill in.

Neither Bowman nor Carswell has made much of an impact on the Tide, with no stats between them that I'm able to discover. Carter, however, is the player who transferred from the Ohio St. Buckeyes by way of a junior college, all due to academic issues. He got as far as the 'Bama practice field after enrolling 2011, but never got beyond that.
