Alabama Lineman Was Thrown 50 Feet By Tornado, Will Recover

Alabama offensive lineman Carson Tinker was thrown 50 feet from his house during the Tuscaloosa tornado on Wednesday night, according to Nick Saban in an interview on ESPN’s College Football Live. Tinker suffered minor injuries, and is expected to recover.


Everyone in a situation like the one in Tuscaloosa becomes a relief worker, and this means everyone. Nick Saban spent the morning driving around and handing out drinks from his car, while former Alabama coach Gene Stallings was out grilling hamburgers in a parking lot for rescue workers.
