Alabama Depth Chart Vs. Arkansas

Alabama dressed the Southeastern Conference limit of 85 players for a home game against Arkansas Saturday and 52 Crimson Tide players saw action against the Razorbacks. Bama used 21 on offense, 20 on defense, and 11 just on special teams.

Kyle Tatum got the first start of his career at defensive tackle, while freshman Dominic Lee, also a defensive tackle, saw his first college action. Defensive tackle was weakened with normal starter Ahmad Childress and Jeremy Clark both held out with injuries and Taylor Britt suspended.

True freshman wide receiver Tyrone Prothro also played, used on one play, an end-around that gained nothing. Justin Smiley returned to left guard after having missed two games with injury.
