TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban says starting inside linebacker Trey DePriest has been suspended ``for a short time.''

Saban said Tuesday that DePriest violated team rules and could be back as soon as a week. The Crimson Tide opens Aug. 31 against Virginia Tech.

Saban didn't elaborate on what the linebacker did but says ``it wasn't a very smart thing to do, and there has to be consequences sometimes when you don't do the right things.''

DePriest was second on the team with 59 tackles.

Top receiver Amari Cooper wore a black non-contact jersey in Tuesday's practice. Saban says he'll be held out several days with a strained foot, and then will have his status evaluated day to day.

Tight end Malcolm Faciane returned to practice after completing a 30-day suspension.
