Saban: Alabama safety Eddie Jackson out for season

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban says star safety Eddie Jackson is out for the season with a fractured leg.

Jackson didn't return to the top-ranked Crimson Tide's 33-14 win Saturday over No. 6 Texas A&M following a fourth-quarter punt return.

Fans chanted "Eddie" as Jackson was taken into the locker room on a cart moments after the Tide scored its final touchdown.
