Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young left the team’s game against Arkansas with an apparent shoulder injury.
The Alabama Crimson Tide were set to play their second SEC opponent of the season, as they went on the road to take on the No. 20 Arkansas Razorbacks. Young played well through the first half, giving his team an early 14-0 lead. But, there was some bad news early on in the second quarter.
Young scrambled to the sidelines and was caught by the legs. As he fell, he attempted to throw the ball away, and landed hard on his right shoulder. Later on, Young attempted a pass, then immediately signaled over to the sideline. When CBS cameras showed that sequence, Young’s right shoulder hung low.
As Young walked along the sidelines, he threw his helmet on the ground, yelled, and walked into the medical tent.

The CBS cameras cut to the medical tent, where a variety of trainers, coaches, and players entered and exited. Just before the end of the first half, Young was spotted walking to the locker room at Razorback Stadium.
As young exited with the injury, he was replaced by redshirt freshman Jalen Milroe.
UPDATE: Head coach Nick Saban gave a brief update at halftime.
“He’s got a shoulder injury. I don’t know the extent of it, I don’t know how bad it is. They worked on him inside, so I’ll probably see when we go in,” Saban told CBS.
Young was designated as questionable.
Prior to his injury, Young completed 7-of-13 pass attempts for 173 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
Young, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, entered Week 5 throwing for 1,029 yards, 13 touchdowns, and two interceptions while completing 68.6-percent of his passes.
