Alabama Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris clears concussion protocol

Alabama running back Damien Harris has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play Saturday against Auburn, coach Nick Saban said.

Harris, a senior and the team’s leading rusher, suffered what Saban described as a “mild concussion” during the second half of a win over The Citadel last weekend. He did not practice on Monday.

“We hope without a setback he’ll be able to play on Saturday,” Saban said on the SEC coaches Teleconference on Wednesday.

Harris has rushed for 678 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide host in-state rival Auburn on Saturday. Regardless of the outcome of the game, Alabama will face Georgia in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 1 in Atlanta.

Offensive linemen Alex Leatherwood, who is dealing with an ankle injury, and Deonte Brown, who is dealing with turf toe, are considered day-to-day. Both are available to practice and are making progress, Saban said.
