TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -Alabama coach Nick Saban says tailback Mark Ingram has the flu, but he doesn't expect him to miss Saturday night's game with Florida International.
Ingram and backup quarterback Star Jackson both missed Tuesday's practice with the flu. Saban said Jackson is improved and was set to practice Wednesday.
The two players are roommates, and Jackson caught the bug first. Saban said the training staff starts treating players quickly when someone around them gets the flu, so he's hoping that makes Ingram's recovery faster.
He said Wednesday Tide players have been able to get past the flu in two or three days, and he's more worried about a player getting sick late in the week.
Ingram ran for 150 yards in the opener against Virginia Tech.
