TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It was Dont'a Hightower's left knee that the Alabama medical staff was working on before taking him to the locker room.

His reaction didn't look real promising when one of the trainers whispered something in his ear. Alabama coach Nick Saban also came over and patted him for encouragement. Hightower has yet to return from the locker room.
