Update 5:44 p.m. CST: I found video of Nick Saban’s appearance on ESPN’s College Football live. Here’s what he said about Carson Tinker:
“Carson Tinker was at his home with several others and was right in the middle of the storm. His house was completely destroyed. He was thrown probably 50 yards from the house, but has a concussion, has a fractured wrist and is pretty beat up, but is stable and will be fine.”
