It looks like bad news for both Bama football and Bama basketball.
The official news first - senior forward Demetrius Jemison will miss the entire 2009-2010 basketball season with a ruptured achilles tendon. While Demetrius isn't the most gifted basketball player on the floor, I'm guessing he would have fared quite while in a system that rewards guys who hustle and play hard.
Unofficially it looks like the Dont'a Hightower injury is as bad as originally thought. I'm sure Coach Saban will let us know for sure during his Monday press conference, but we're hearing that he has torn his MCL and ACL. The second one is the big one, and if true, means he'll miss the remainder of the 2009 season, as well as the 2010 spring practice.
We'll have more on what the Tide will have to do to replace Hightower during the week.
