Report: Alabama OT Matt Womack to miss spring with foot injury

Alabama was able to win the national championship last season despite the roster being decimated with injuries. We’re still early in the year, but it looks like that injury bug may be carrying over into 2018.

Here’s a tweet sent out from BamaOnline’s Charlie Potter on Tuesday morning:

Womack was the Tide’s starting right tackle all of last season. The 6-7, 327-pound redshirt junior did struggle at times in pass protection, but he’s been one of the veteran leaders along an offensive line that is already losing guys such as center Bradley Bozeman and reserve offensive lineman J.C. Hassenauer.

There’s already been speculation that Alabama could be looking to shake up its offensive front with Tua Tagovailoa — who’s a left-handed quarterback — expected to be heavily involved in a competition with last year’s starter Jalen Hurts. With Womack having to miss time, it’ll be interesting to see how some of the other players respond to seeing more reps with the starters.

The good news is that Womack’s backup from last year, Jedrick Wills, is a highly-touted sophomore who saw action in several games as a true freshman.
