TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Early last week it became official that Alabama starting wide receiver DeAndrew White and backup running back Dee Hart would miss the remainder of the season with knee surgery. But it wasn't until Monday that the players tasked with replacing the two became clear.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said backup H-Back Brent Calloway and backup quarterback Blake Sims would be the top two candidates to replace Hart in the backfield.

"We have two guys that I think we have to get ready to some degree to be able to give us some depth at running back," Saban said. "Calloway is a guy who played running back here for a long time, who we tried to make an H-back, who we're going to give some repetition to at that position. Blake Sims has been a running back in the past, even though he's sort of a backup quarterback right now, I still think that his skill-set would allow him very easily with his understanding of the offense and previous experience to go back and be able to play that position to some degree."
