Alabama Crimson Tide RB Terry Grant Calls It Quits

Daniel KablackCorrespondent IIIMarch 14, 2010

The Alabama running back who's early career looked very promising has decided to call it quits and not rejoin the program for a fifth-year.

Terry Grant has decided to fore go the next year due to injuries he's suffered throughout his college campaign.

First starting as a redshirt freshman for Nick Saban's first year as head coach of the Tide in 2007, Grant lead the team in rushing.

On 180 carries, he gained 891 yards and eight touchdowns. He also picked up 26 receptions for 176 yards and a touchdown.

Grant had played in three games as a true freshman, but was injured during the season. He missed the final nine games with an injury and received a medical redshirt year.

"He's been injured two years in a row," Head coach Nick Saban said, recalling the two surgeries that Grant has had for a sports hernia.

"He decided because of injuries, and he's already graduated, that he would not come back for his fifth year."

Grant recorded 35 carries for 88 yards in 2008.

Last season, he rushed 40 times for 166 yards and three touchdowns.

Crimson Tide wide receiver Travis Sikes has also decided not to come back to the program for a fifth-year.
