Two Alabama freshmen sent home for curfew violations

Second-ranked Alabama will continue preparations for Monday night's BCS National Championship game without two of its players.

According to a Crimson White report, freshmen linebackers Dillon Lee and Ryan Anderson have been sent back to Tuscaloosa for breaking curfew in South Florida.

Lee, a inside linebacker from Buford, Ga., has appeared in eight games for the Crimson Tide this season in a reserve role. He recorded a late interception in Alabama's opener against Michigan.

Anderson, a highly-touted outside linebacker from Daphne, Ala, did not play a down for the Crimson Tide.
