You might have missed this on Bo Scarbrough’s 85-yard touchdown run on Saturday, but at the end of the play, Tennessee defensive back Micah Abernathy pulled up.
On Monday Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones were discussing Scarbrough’s run on Highly Questionable, Scarbrough tried to get a high five from a fan afterwards, when Le Batard noticed Abernathy at the end of the play.

Le Batard seemed to think that the Tennessee sophomore was faking his injury on the play.
“Was that a fake hamstring injury?” Le Batard asked. “He wanted some dap and he didn’t get any dap. Look at when someone came up with a mysterious hamstring injury at the 2-yard line after not being able to chase down the guy who is much faster than him. … He might be hurt but that’s his pride talking.”
Jones brushed off Le Batard’s suggestions, saying Abernathy actually could have been hurt.
On Monday, someone alerted Abernathy what Le Batard had said and responded with a tweet.
I don't even know who that is. Must not be important. https://t.co/LfV75vCeYr
