The Alabama Crimson Tide may have taken a significant blow to their Lane Kiffin-run offense. Running back Kenyan Drake suffered an arm injury in today’s game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in an Southeastern Conference contest.
He had an air cast on his arm as he went into the locker room with a trainer. Then, minutes later, he would be seen coming back to the sidelines with the same trainer holding the air cast under his arm. It doesn’t look good.
It doesn’t appear like he’ll be able to return to the game. Depending on the type of injury, this may result in him missing several weeks, or even potentially the rest of the season, including the team’s bowl game.
One can only speculate what kind of injury this is. It could be a broken arm or a forearm injury, or something totally different than that.
He was injured when he was trying to make a tackle on a play.
The senior from Georgia has appeared in nine games this season, including a start. He has 68 attempts for 333 yards and a touchdown.
He also has 19 receptions for 221 yards and a touchdown.
Drake, who committed to the Crimson Tide on February 14th, 2011, has appeared in 24 games, including three career starts, in his collegiate career. He has rushed for 1,412 yards and has 515 receiving yards.
He also has 22 career touchdowns, including a career-best nine in 2013.
