Alabama QB Bryce Young leaves game with shoulder injury

Written by Tony Ghaul

University of Alabama star QB Bryce Young suffered a shoulder injury during Saturday’s game at Arkansas.

Young was in serious pain after an incompletion to Traeshon Holden in the second quarter. He immediately headed off the field and pointed to his throwing shoulder when talking to Head Coach Nick Saban. Young then entered the Crimson Tide’s medical tent, where he remained for an extended period of time.

The CBS sideline reporter said on the broadcast that she heard a loud yell from Alabama’s medical tent shortly after Young entered it. Young landed hard on his his throwing shoulder three plays previous when trying to avoid former Arkansas LB Drew Sanders.

Young was 7-for-13 for 173 yards, with one touchdown and one interception when he left the game in the second quarter. Alabama was up on the scoreboard 14-0. Jalen Milroe entered the game to replace Bryce Young at QB.

CBS analyst Gary Danielson believes it’s a rotator cuff injury for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and potential #1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
