Speaking with the media Wednesday after announcing a positive result from his recent COVID-19 test, Alabama coach Nick Saban said he has not yet decided how much autonomy offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will have on the sideline Saturday as he steps into an increased role with Saban expected to be absent from the game. With No. 2 Alabama facing No. 3 Georgia at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday in the SEC on CBS Game of the Week, not having Saban on the sideline will put the Crimson Tide at a clear disadvantage.

Saban’s status only remains in question because he will undergo another test to confirm that he is positive for COVID-19, but assuming it comes back another positive result, Saban will not be in attendance at Bryant-Denny Stadium for Alabama’s biggest game of the regular season.
