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."
