Alabama head football coach Nick Saban revealed Wednesday afternoon during his press conference that redshirt junior wide receiver Xavier Williams will not be with the Crimson Tide in 2021.

"Ziggy has some medical issues that's keeping him out," Saban said. "Without saying what... he's medically not going to play this year."

Williams has played in 11 games in three years with Alabama. He's caught three passes, one pass each in the postseason of 2020. He was expected to transition into a battle with Traeshon Holden and Javon Baker to play alongside John Metchie and Slade Bolden in the starting lineup.

Williams joined the Crimson Tide in 2018 as a 4-star prospect from Orlando.
