TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama wide receiver Tyrone Prothro faces more surgery to repair the leg he broke during the Florida game in 2005.
Coach Nick Saban disclosed the upcoming operation during a news conference yesterday, but he was vague about Prothro's condition.
Prothro missed all of last season, and he was doubtful to play this year even before the surgery.
Prothro suffered a compound fracture of his left leg while attempting to make a catch on October first, 2005, and spent a month in the hospital after infection set in.
He has had at least two surgeries on the leg.
