Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon will miss one quarter of Saturday's game against Colorado State for making a throat-slashing gesture during last week's game against Texas A&M, according to the Anniston Star.

The Crimson Tide take on the Rams at 7 p.m. ET. Yeldon is forced to sit out the first quarter.

Yeldon was penalized for making the gesture. He apologized for it through a statement Monday.

"I want to apologize to everyone for my selfish actions on Saturday," Yeldon said. "That is not the way I want to represent myself, my family and our team.

"That is not the way we do things at Alabama. This is something that I will learn from, and I will use better judgment in the future."

Coach Nick Saban was clearly unhappy with Yeldon's gesture during a press conference on Thursday, saying "that's not our program" and "that's not what we do."
