I work in a profession that doesn't really require a lot of physical activity. Still, if I were to break my hand somehow, it would severly inhibit my ability to type for a while. I'd have to go to the one-handed approach that I haven't really utilized since I was in grade school and learning how to type.

Then there is Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower.

Hightower plays football, which requires a lot more physical activity than blogging, and he does it on one of the best defenses in the country. Yet, when he breaks his hand it's no big deal.



Yes, that's right. Hightower broke his hand, had to have surgery on it, but he'll be back at practice tomorrow. He'll probably be more dangerous than ever, too, as he'll now have a weapon on his hand in the form of a cast. And as NFL Hall of Famer Deacon Jones can attest to, having a cast on your hand can definitely be used to a defender's advantage.

You can't really believe you will beat Bama again.  Last year was last year.  The chokin chicken have beat Alabama 3 times on the field and only 4 in school history.  If you make it to Atlanta it will be because the east division truly is sucking it up on that side of the conference....Roll Tide Chokin Chickens.......

He can play with a broken leg and be better on the field than most.  I just don/t see this being an major injury since he wil be at practice come next week.  roll Tide roll.
