Alabama coach Nick Saban said Wednesday that safety HaHa Clinton-Dix has been
suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. Saban refused to get into
specifics, warning reporters not to ask what the suspension was for and saying
he didn't know how long it would last.
"I'm going to be consistent," Saban told the media following Alabama's
practice. "When guys get suspended, I never ever say what it's for."
Clinton-Dix is one of the most important defensive players on the nation's
No. 1-ranked team. Though he has been excellent in pass coverage throughout his
career at Alabama, he's also been a key run-stopper this season with 24 tackles.
Clinton-Dix, a junior, is projected by many experts to be a first-round NFL
draft pick in 2014 and is expected to turn pro after this season.
