What Happened To Alabama Crimson Tide QB Bryce Young?
Bryce Young is recovering from an AC sprain in his right shoulder (throwing shoulder) that he suffered two weeks ago in the game against Arkansas Razorbacks.
The injury appeared on a play where Bryce was tackled and fell out of bounds on his shoulder. He initially did not look in pain until the next pass.
He frowned and quickly made his way to the Alabama injury tent. After spending a good amount of time in the tent, where players checked in with him, and personnel examined him, he ran off the field to the locker room.
Bryce was 7-of-13 for 173 yards with one touchdown and one pick through the first quarter-and-a-half of action until that point in the game.
Although Alabama won the match 49-26, their key player came out injured.
