Cody to miss at least 2 weeks for Alabama

By  | 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama nose guard Terrence Cody will

probably miss at least two games.

Coach Nick Saban said Monday that Cody sustained a sprained

medial collateral ligament in his right knee in the second-ranked

Crimson Tide's win over Mississippi.

Saban said Cody's injury is similar to one that sidelined

offensive tackle Andre Smith for a game earlier this season. He is

expected to miss this week's game at Tennessee and next week's

game with Arkansas State.

The 365-pounder could be back in time for a game at No. 11 LSU.

Josh Chapman has been rotating in the middle with Cody.

Saban said defensive end Lorenzo Washington could move back to his

old position.

Nick Gentry also got into the game some against Ole Miss.
