TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — University of Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley will miss the Florida game Saturday with an elbow injury, UA coach Nick Saban confirmed on his weekly radio program.

The Crimson Tide's weak side linebacker was hurt against Arkansas last week and was limited in practice.

"It is what it is," Saban said on his show, "Hey Coach". "He's going to be out for this week for sure and, I don't know, probably day to day thereafter. We have some other guys that have an opportunity now."

When Mosley was injured last week, several reserves were used to fill his various roles, including redshirt freshman Adrian Hubbard and true freshman Trey DePriest. Last year, Mosley was a key performer in UA's 31-6 win over Florida with an interception return for a touchdown.
