Sophomore tight end Trent Davidson (Brewton) will miss the opening of fall football practice Tuesday after a procedure to repair a fracture of a bone in his right foot.
Davidson had been bothered by a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot. The surgery was performed by Dr. Les Fowler at DCH Regional Medical Center.
The surgical procedure consisted of placing a screw across the fracture site to stabilize the injury. Davidson is expected to be out four to six weeks with the injury.
The Alabama football team will report on Monday, Aug. 8 and the first day of practice is Tuesday, Aug. 9.
