Saban Gives Update on Injured Defensive Lineman
Alabama football head coach Nick Saban gave an update on defensive lineman Byron Young in Saturday night's post-game press conference after Alabama's 55-3 victory over Vanderbilt.
"He's got a sprained ankle, so that's the only update I've got," said Saban.
Young exited the game with 5:21 to go in the third quarter. He was helped off the field by trainers, went into the medical tent, then was carted off into the locker room for further evaluation.
The senior was seen on the sideline later in the game, out of uniform and on crutches. He also had a boot on as he was exiting Bryant-Denny Stadium after the game.
Young has had a strong season so far, recording nine total tackles (three solo, six assisted), two tackles for loss for six yards, 0.5 sacks for three yards, and one quarterback hit.
The Alabama Crimson Tide travels to Fayetteville, Ark., to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. CT. Coverage will be on Tide 100.9 and 95.3 The Bear.
