No wonder Bo Scarbrough spent so much time in the Alabama injury tent in the second half of the College Football Playoff national title game.
The star Alabama running back injured his right leg during the national title game on Monday night. And it appears as though the injury was pretty serious.
According to a report from ESPN’s Chris Low, Scarbrough suffered a broke bone in his lower right leg.
Scarbrough, who battled his way back from two ACL injuries to get to the point of contributing to the Crimson Tide’s national title efforts in 2016, was making a name for himself on the national stage prior to the injury.
He led all players with 16 carries for 93 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns during a 35-31 Clemson win against Alabama on Monday night. Crimson Tide fans will be left to wonder if the game may have played out differently if Scarbrough was able to participate in the fourth quarter.
The severity of the reported break is not yet known, making it hard to place a timetable on Scarbrough’s return to the field for the Crimson Tide.
