TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban says safety
Mark Barron will miss the Crimson Tide's bowl game with an injury
to his right pectoral muscle.

Saban says Barron had surgery to repair a torn muscle and
started rehabilitating the injury, but won't be back in time for a
bowl. Barron was hurt in the regular-season finale against Auburn.

He told reporters after the game that he had torn his pectoral
trying to break up a second-quarter touchdown catch by Emory Blake.
Barron said it affected him later on a 70-yard TD pass to Terrell
Zachery when he couldn't raise his arm.

Barron leads the team with 75 tackles and also has three
interceptions.

He was a third-team All-American last season after leading the
Southeastern Conference with seven interceptions.
