Alabama cornerback Eddie Jackson will undergo an MRI on Sunday after injuring his knee at Saturday's scrimmage. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Jackson landed on his knee awkwardly after he jumped to catch a pass. It was a non-contact injury, he said. Sophomore linebacker Reuben Foster suffered a stinger during the scrimmage, Saban said, stressing that the injury was relatively minor. Jackson, a sophomore from Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., had been seen working with a cluster of cornerbacks during first-team drills throughout the spring. Saban said Jackson was having a "great spring" and was "probably our best corner." Jackson emerged as a fan favorite last season when he worked his way into the starting lineup and made multiple big plays in a September win over Ole Miss. His playing time decreased significantly during the second half of the season, but he was back as a starter for the Sugar Bowl.
