Alabama Depth Chart vs. South Carolina

Alabama used 58 players in last Saturday's 20-3 loss to South Carolina – 18 on offense, 21 on defense and 19 on special teams. The Tide lost starting weak-side linebacker Juwan Garth, who left the game with a shoulder injury after only seven plays. Garth is expected to be out for a few weeks. His back-up, undersized Demarcus Waldrop, played well in 56 defensive snaps.

True freshman Keith Brown was back in the starting lineup before another injury in the second quarter forced him out of the game.
