Nick Saban: Kenyan Drake has a broken arm

According to head coach Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide running back Kenyan Drake has a broken arm after being injured in today’s game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He was injured trying to make a tackle against a Bulldogs player.

He went to the locker room with a trainer with an air cast on his arm. It was speculated that it may have been a forearm injury by the CBS announced before Saban’s comments.

“He’s definitely out for this name,” Saban said in an interview with Allie LaForce. “He’s going to get X-rays and I think he has a broken arm.”

Minutes later, he would come back to the sidelines with the same trainer holding the air cast under his arm. It doesn’t appear like he’ll be able to return to the game.

He was walking to the sidelines as Heisman Trophy candidate Derrick Henry broke loose for a long touchdown, as Alabama went up 21-3.

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, could be out significant time. He may have to miss the rest of the regular season of its a broken arm.

Depending on how bad its broken, it could miss the team’s to-be-determined bowl game. With Drake out, the tea, will count on Henry even more now as they finish their season.

In 24 games, including three career starts, he had 1,412 rushing yards and 515 receiving yards. He has 22 career touchdowns, including a career-best nine in 2013.
