The junior offensive lineman told media members that he was injured in the third quarter of the Tennessee game, which is now nearly a week and a half ago, but that he should be set to play this upcoming Saturday in the Crimson Tide’s highly-anticipated home matchup with LSU.
As the 2023 regular season has gone on the offense has improved significantly, but many still believe the offensive line is a weak spot for the team. Latham has been a strong member of the unit and having him on the field, even in a somewhat limited capacity, is crucial to the success of Jalen Milroe and the rest of the offense.
Alabama RT JC Latham arrived at his news conference Tuesday wearing a walking boot. He said his injury happened in the third quarter but he'll be "ready to play" against LSU.
