Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough reportedly suffered a broken bone in his right leg during the third quarter of the Crimson Tide’s 35-31 loss to Clemson.


Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough was having another monster game in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday night against Clemson, rushing for 93 yards and two touchdowns and looking unstoppable.

Unfortunately for Scarbrough and the Crimson Tide, he would leave the game in the third quarter and never return in the 35-31 loss to the Tigers. According to an injury update per Chris Low of ESPN, Scarbrough suffered a broken bone in his lower right leg.

The absence of Scarbrough, who came on late in the season as the main rushing threat for the Tide, including a 180-yard, two touchdown performance against Washington in the CFP semifinal, hurt the Alabama offense as Damien Harris and Joshua Jacobs could not step up and carry the load. Quarterback Jalen Hurts was Alabama’s second leading rusher behind Scarbrough, running for 63 yards with 30 of those being on his touchdown to put the Tide ahead with 2:07 left in the fourth quarter.

Scarbrough, who finished the season with 812 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, will be back in Tuscaloosa for his junior season and, along with Harris and Jacobs, will form one of the most explosive and powerful backfields in the nation. There might also be competition from early enrollee Najee Harris, a five-star recruit from Antioch, Calif. that was ranked the No. 1 running back and overall player in the country by Scout.

Update: Alabama head coach Nick Saban issued a statement with an update on the injury.

“Bo Scarbrough suffered a fracture to his right lower leg during the game. The injury is non-surgical and we anticipate he will make a full recover.”
