TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -Media reports say University of Alabama defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick has been brought to a hospital after being shot during an apparent robbery attempt in Tuscaloosa.
The shooting happened Monday night at an apartment complex. Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson told the Tuscaloosa News the player suffered a gunshot wound to the forearm. Anderson says it's not a life-threatening injury.
DCH Hospital spokesman Brad Fisher told the Mobile Press-Register that Deaderick is in good condition and was admitted for the night to a hospital room.
Deaderick is expected to have a major role on defense during the upcoming season for the Crimson Tide. Last year, the defensive end had four sacks in 14 starts.
