MRI To Determine Severity Of Cody Knee
Terrence Cody will have an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. Saban said Alabama is lucky to have Dr. Jim Andrews' staff, including Dr. Lyle Cain, on staff. Saban said the injury appeared to be one similar to that suffered earlier this year by offensive tackle Andre Smith, a sprained knee.
Until the injury, the talk of Cody involved shades of "Refrigerator." Late in the second quarter with Alabama second and goal at the Ole Miss two-yard line, Crimson Tide Cody went into the game at fullback. It was no contest as Bama's Mark Ingram followed the 6-5, 365-pound Cody into the end zone.
In the 1980s, the Chicago Bears caused a stir by using the mammoth William "Refrigerator" Perry, a defensive tackle, as an offensive back, both a blocker and a runner.
Saban was asked about the decision to use Cody at fullback. "It wasn't rocket science," Saban said. "He's a great big guy. He took almost the whole side of the line and moved it. A better question would have been ‘Why didn't you do it sooner?' You probably didn't ask that because I'm on the verge of a tirade."
Predictably, the next question for Saban was, "Why didn't you do it sooner?" The coach said the staff had talked about it earlier, but didn't have time to put it in until the bye week.
