Nick Saban kicked a second Alabama player off the team yesterday, dismissing reserve running back Tyren Jones after his arrest for marijuana possession.

Jones is the third player in Saban's program arrested in the past four days, and the second to be dismissed.

Jones was charged with possession of marijuana 2nd degree and released on $1,000 bond.

Saban had suspended Jones indefinitely on Feb. 10 "for conduct not to the standard of the Alabama football program."

Safety Geno Smith and since-dismissed defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor were arrested on Saturday.

Smith was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol for the second time in his Alabama career.

Taylor, who had been dismissed from Georgia last July after a domestic-violence arrest, now faces similar charges stemming from another incident in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
