Alabama free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is expected to miss 1-3 games after the university reported his violation of team rules, according to a report from CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler.

Citing a source with direct knowledge of the situation, Fowler reported that Alabama has proposed a suspension length of 1-3 games to the NCAA.

The Tuscaloosa News reported that Clinton-Dix loaned between $100-300 from Alabama assistant strength coach Corey Harris last summer. The Tuscaloosa News also reported that Harris has been placed on administrative leave following the incident.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban told reporters Wednesday that Clinton-Dix would be suspended indefinitely, but he did not specify the nature of the suspension.

Through the Crimson Tide’s first four games, Clinton-Dix ranked second on the Alabama defense with 24 total tackles. He has also recorded two pass breakups and a pair of passes defended.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide face Georgia State on Saturday in Tuscaloosa.

Is that the guy's real name or is this a very old Monica Lewinsky joke I missed?

1-3 Games?  Might as well suspend Posey for another 9.

@NoThanksESPNFacebookHis given name is Ha'Sean.  Think Ha Ha caught on given the beginning of his real name.  Personally, I like Ha Ha better than Ha'Sean. 

Roll Tide!

 Exaclty what I was thinking...

 Regardless of what writers, students, and fans think,  Saban has been masterful this season in covering up his team's defensive weaknesses thus far.  Evey Bama fan stated that Saban had an entire year and an off week to prepare and study Johnny Football.  Although A&M lost, Johnny exposed weaknesses in the Bama secondary and racked up MORE yardage this year than last year.

Saban knows he needs Dix on defense when they play LSU.

@Aggie81 @TobyWaller In order to exploit the weakness (not weaknesses), you need a 6'5" basketball player WR and Johnny Manziel. I don't know of many teams that are able to meet those requirements ...
