TAMPA, Fla. — Alabama coach Nick Saban confirmed Tuesday that Crimson Tide running back Bo Scarbrough fractured his leg in the team’s national championship loss to Clemson on Monday night.
“Bo Scarbrough suffered a fracture to his right lower leg during the game,” Saban said in a statement. “The injury is non-surgical and we anticipate he will make a full recovery.”
Scarbrough has dealt with injuries dating back to his high school career. In his first season with Alabama, Scarbrough tore his ACL during the spring.
Scarbrough was in the midst of a breakout campaign on the national stage.
He rushed for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns in Alabama’s semifinal win over Washington. Prior to his injury on Monday, Scarbrough ran for 93 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Alabama’s offense was without its closer in the fourth quarter when Scarbrough went down.
