TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- No. 2 Alabama's once-deep receiving corps has been hit by its third serious injury.

The Crimson Tide lost deep threat Kenny Bell to a broken leg against Auburn and now faces No. 3 Georgia in Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game.

Coach Nick Saban says "we definitely need to get more guys ready to play." That could include highly recruited freshman Chris Black, who has been practicing for a few weeks after a preseason shoulder injury.

Black would be in line for a redshirt if he doesn't play in the next two games. He was the nation's No. 2 receiver prospect, according to ESPNU.

DeAndrew White started the first five games before a season-ending knee injury against Mississippi.

The Bulldogs have lost receivers Michael Bennett and Marlon Brown to knee injuries.
