Here is the latest Alabama sports news from The Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn receiver D'haquille Williams isn't expected to play against Georgia because of a knee injury. Coach Gus Malzahn didn't rule Williams out for Saturday night's game but says "it's probably unlikely." Malzahn says Williams is "week to week right now" for the Tigers after injuring his right knee against Texas A&M.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia's Mark Richt is doing his best to downplay the return of Todd Gurley. Of course, the end of Gurley's four-game suspension is the big storyline as the Bulldogs host Auburn on Saturday. Richt says he doesn't want Gurley's return to be a distraction.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The season has taken a toll on Alabama's once deep, imposing backfield. T.J. Yeldon is nursing an ankle injury leading up to Saturday's game with Mississippi State and Kenyan Drake is out with a broken leg. The Crimson Tide's running game already hasn't been forcefully overwhelming opponents quite as it has in recent years.
