According to teammate John Fulton, Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix played through a knee injury in the Iron Bowl against the Auburn Tigers last Saturday. Clinton-Dix, who is fourth on the team in tackles, had meniscus surgery this week.
The Montgomery Advertiser captured Fulton’s tweet, which was later retweeted by Clinton-Dix himself:
Salute to my lil brudda (Clinton-Dix). My young bull pushed through the pain and played wit a torn meniscus for the squad. I’m prayin that your surgery went well and that you have a speedy recovery. You a warrior fam. GOD got so many blessings coming your way and got you through it all so just remember that.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban, who is out recruiting this week, did not comment on Clinton-Dix’s injury.
We wish Clinton-Dix, a junior considered to be one of the top players at his position for next year’s NFL Draft, the best in his recovery.
