A day after Alabama's best offensive guard was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Nick Saban chose to suspend the senior indefinitely, according to Saturday Down South.
In the 2015 National Championship season, Taylor and the Alabama O-line won the Joe Moore Award, which is given to the "most outstanding offensive line unit" in the nation. Taylor was also notably named as a preseason second-team All-SEC selection just last week.
Taylor is now listed at 345 pounds on the latest roster on the team's official website.
The Alabama head coach did this during 2016 spring practice and said the following about Taylor after the Crimson Tide's spring game, "He's going to continue to be on the second team if he doesn't get his weight down and get in shape".
Cam Robinson, one of the top top offensive tackles in the country this season, and Lawrence "Hootie" Jones, a member of Alabama's safety rotation, were arrested in May on gun and drug charges. Will Saban let Taylor's DUI slide like he has with Robinson and Jones' arrests?
At SEC Media Days, Saban said the two were unlikely to be suspended. Without Taylor, the Crimson Tide won't have a senior in the starting lineup. No word yet on if Saban or Alabama will do anything about the latest player arrest.
