Ray Hudson

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - University of Alabama senior tailback Ray Hudson had successful knee surgery Tuesday afternoon at Health South Medical Center in Birmingham.

"Ray came out of surgery late Tuesday afternoon," said Crimson Tide head athletic trainer Rodney Brown.  "Doctors Jim Andrews and Lyle Cain performed arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to repair cartilage damage and a small fracture of the leg bone at the knee joint."

Hudson is expected to be on crutches from four to five weeks.  He will begin the rehabilitation process immediately.
