TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — No. 1 Alabama safety Vinnie Sunseri left Saturday night's 52-0 victory over Arkansas with a knee injury.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says Sunseri's left knee will be examined on Sunday "but it could be serious."

Sunseri limped off the field with trainers after getting hurt on kickoff coverage.

The Tide starter came in as the sixth-leading tackler with 20 stops. He had a team-high two interceptions, returning them 38 and 73 yards for touchdowns in Alabama's first two games.

The Tide did get back free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from a two-game suspension. He was reinstated by the NCAA on Friday after reportedly accepting a short-term loan from an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

Saban said cornerback Bradley Sylve is day to day with a high ankle sprain.
