Alabama RB Kenyan Drake leaves game with apparent arm injury
UPDATE: Coach Nick Saban said Drake would not return to Saturday’s game. “We’re gonna do X-rays,” he said. “But I think he’s got a broken arm.”
UDPATE 2: Following the game, Saban said Drake would miss three weeks with a fractured arm.
One play after making a huge block on Calvin Ridley’s 60-yard touchdown catch, Alabama running back Kenyan Drake suffered an apparent lower arm injury on kickoff coverage.
The senior was hurt while tackling Mississippi State kickoff returner Brandon Holloway, and was seen wearing a gigantic brace on the sideline soon after.

Drake was lost for the season in 2014 after a gruesome leg injury at Ole Miss. He’d also dealt with various nicks — including a thigh issue — this year, too.
