Alabama wide receiver DeAndrew White has been hospitalized with a concussion following an altercation in downtown Tuscaloosa early Thursday morning, according to Chase Goodbread of and The Tuscaloosa News. His injury is not considered serious.

According to Goodbread, police were called to the scene of an incident shortly after 2:00 a.m CT. after gun shots were heard on University Boulevard.

The gunshots were not related to the incident, and police later arrested three people for reckless endangerment for allegedly firing shots in the air to disperse the crowd.

Police later found a 31-year-old man unconscious a block away from the incident with head injuries. According to Goodbread's source, there were two separate incidents on University Boulevard.

White is expected to be a key contributor for Alabama's new-look receiving corps. He caught 14 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in 2011.

Don Kausler Jr., Alabama beat writer for, projected White as a second-team wide receiver behind Kenny Bell on his post-spring depth chart.

The incident comes hours before the 2011 Alabama team is set to meet President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 2011 BCS National Championship. That ceremony will take place at the White House at 1:20 p.m. CT.
