  10/01/22 - Bryce YoungJr/2024, Alabama + More +

  Alabama quarterback Bryce Young left the No. 2 Crimson Tide's game against No. 20 Arkansas midway through the second quarter Saturday after an apparent injury to his throwing shoulder. The Heisman Trophy winner came off the field after Alabama's fifth drive ended at its own 42, favoring his right arm and holding it close to his body after attempting a pass that went incomplete. Young, who had already thrown a touchdown pass and run for a score, threw his helmet down before entering the medical tent on the Alabama sideline.

He was then seen leaving the field, running up the tunnel with his arm still pressed close to his side. Young threw for 173 yards before he left with 10:42 remaining in the first half. Jalen Milroe came in for Young and scored a rushing touchdown on Alabama's next offensive possession to put the Tide up 21-0. On the drive before Young exited, he was sacked for a 4-yard loss by Arkansas linebacker Drew Sanders, a teammate of Young's with the Crimson Tide last year. Young landed awkwardly on his front side during the sack but returned for the next drive. His status to return to the game was unclear. - AP College Football

  Bryce Young passed for a season-high 385 yards and four touchdowns and No. 2 Alabama beat Vanderbilt 55-3 Saturday night in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. It was the first 300-yard game of the season for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, who didn't play in the fourth quarter and completed 25 of 36 passes. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0) opted to air it out against the Commodores (3-2, 0-1) and finally got big games and plays from multiple receivers. It was the most passing yards for Young since perhaps locking up the Heisman with 421 yards against Georgia in the SEC championship game. "I think it was kind of our plan going into this game that we would spread these guys out more and try to attack them in the secondary," Alabama coach Nick Saban said. "We thought we had some pretty good matchups." Alabama outgained Vandy 628-129 in total yards.

Ja'Corey Brooks had a career night, all in the first half when he had six catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. Georgia transfer Jermaine Burton had his biggest game for the Tide: 94 yards on four catches, including a 48-yarder. "We have high expectations for what our guys can do and Ja'Corey certainly didn't disappoint tonight," Saban said. "He had a great start to the game." Jahmyr Gibbs, who started the first three games at tailback, mostly lined up at receiver while Jase McClellan took over in the backfield. McClellan ran for 78 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Gibbs caught three passes for 43 yards and a score. Vanderbilt freshman AJ Swann completed 13 of 26 passes for 115 yards in his second start after throwing for 255 yards and four touchdowns against Northern Illinois. - Alabama/AP College Football

  Bryce Young passed for three touchdowns and rushed for a fourth, Will Anderson Jr. scored on an interception return and No. 2 Alabama rolled to a 63-7 victory over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (3-0) scored on offense, defense and special teams in the first six minutes and raced to a 28-0 first-quarter lead. It was a whirlwind start against the 49 1/2-point underdog Warhawks (1-2) a week after a much closer-than-expected victory over Texas cost Alabama the No. 1 ranking. It wasn't a seamless performance for either the Tide offense or Young, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. He completed 13 of 18 passes for 236 yards but also threw his first two interceptions of the season. He did run for a 7-yard score, where he spun near the goal line and dove across.

Anderson returned his first career interception 25 yards for a touchdown, one play after Young's initial pick. The national sacks leader a year ago, he also got his second sack of the season. Malachi Moore got a short scoop-and-score after Ja'Corey Brooks' blocked punt. Chandler Rogers completed 11 of 21 passes 96 yards for Louisiana-Monroe and was intercepted once. Malik Jackson ran for an 11-yard touchdown. Jahmyr Gibbs remained the Tide's most versatile weapon. He gained 36 yards on nine carries and caught four passes for 65 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown when he juked one defender and shed a couple of downfield tackle attempts. The Tide outgained Louisiana-Monroe 509-169. - Alabama/AP College Football

  During his appearance on the SEC coaches teleconference Wednesday, Nick Saban provided an update on injured receiver Tyler Harrell, stating the Louisville transfer is still dealing with a sprained foot and will not be available for Saturday's 3 p.m. CT kickoff against Louisiana Monroe inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. "He has not been able to practice this week," Saban said. "He will not play in this game. He's kind of day-to-day with this foot [injury] that he has. Hopefully, he'll be back sometime soon." Harrell has yet to make his Alabama debut since joining the team this offseason.

He was seen in a walking boot before the season opener against Utah State on Sept. 3 and did not make the trip to Texas with the team last weekend. Harrell led Louisville averaging 29.06 yards per catch last season, pulling in 18 receptions for 523 yards and a team-high six touchdowns. According to Louisville Report, Cardinals head coach Scott Satterfield said the 6-foot, 194-pound receiver recorded a hand-timed 4.19 time in the 40-yard dash last offseason. - Rivals Alabama

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 2: 13. Jordan Battle, Sr, SS, Alabama, 6-0, 206, 1,...In a 20-19 win over Texas, Battle had three tackles, an assist and helped keep running back Bijan Robinson from getting loose. But Battle was conflicted against early play-action which sometimes helped the Texas passing game. Previous week, No. 15: Despite being a strong safety, Battle looked as good or better in coverage as he did tackling in Bama's 55-0 dismantling of Utah State. He had four tackles and held Utah State to 136 total yards, only 57 in the air. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

Bryce Young, Jr, QB, Alabama, 6-0, 194, 1,...Under pressure by a tough Texas defense for three quarters, Young finally looked like a Heisman Trophy winner with two scoring drives in the fourth quarter. On one he scrambled to his left and threw a touchdown into the end zone. On the other, he scrambled 20 yards to help set up the winning field goal with ten seconds left. Previous week, No. 4: Bryce Young did Bryce Young things in the first half of No. 1 Alabama's 55-0 trouncing of Utah State, throwing five touchdowns in the first half and running 96 yards on four carries. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 2: 1. Will Anderson Jr., Jr, OLB, Alabama, 6-3, 243, 1,...Anderson had good and bad moments in a 20-19 win over Texas with two tackles, three assists and key sack in the fourth quarter that forced the Longhorns to settle for a field goal. He also committed a couple of senseless penalties, including a late hit that opened the way for a field goal that put Texas ahead, 13-10. Previous week, No.1: In Alabama's resounding 55-0 season-opening win over Utah State Saturday, was a factor. His personal stats weren't huge - five total tackles, three solo - but his play was, including a tackle that blew up Utah running back Logan Bonner that validated the linebacker's moniker "The Terminator." - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 2: 21. Jermaine Burton, Jr, WR, Alabama, 6-0, 200, 1,...Against a rugged Texas defense, Burton did OK with two catches for 10 yards; far under expectations. Previous week, No. 23: Burton caught five passes for 35 yards and two scores in a 55-0 win over Utah State. Coach Nick Saban failed in an attempt to recruit Burton out of high school but jumped at the chance to get him out of the transfer portal. Burton hopes to become the latest in a list of Alabama's seven first round receivers since 2011. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  Will Reichard kicked a 33-yard field goal with 10 seconds left, and Bryce Young and No. 1 Alabama overcame a stifling defensive effort by Texas to earn a hard-fought 20-19 victory Saturday. Young was hit and harassed by the Texas defense most of the game, but the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback put together a big fourth quarter. He had a twisting, off-balance touchdown pass, and then a 20-yard scramble in the final minute to set up Reichard's winning kick. Young easily dodged a blitzing defender, then had wide open field ahead of him to scamper. Young's clutch play rescued Alabama on an uncharacteristically sloppy day when the Crimson Tide (2-0) struggled with penalties and dropped passes and was forced into six consecutive punts in one stretch. Texas (1-1) stuffed Alabama on fourth-and-inches late to set up a go-ahead field goal by Bert Auburn with 1:39 remaining.

Young also spoiled what could have been a program-defining victory for Texas and second-year coach Steve Sarkisian. Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers was knocked out with a shoulder injury at the end of the first quarter. The steady hand of backup Hudson Card and an inspired defense helped Texas build a 16-10 lead early in the fourth, and then drive for the lead again on Auburn's fourth field goal of the day. Young was 27-of-39 passing for 213 yards with the scrambling TD throw to Jahmyr Gibbs that gave Alabama a 17-16 lead. Jase McLellan had an 81-yard touchdown run for Alabama in the first quarter. Alabama avoided its first nonconference loss since 2007 against Louisiana-Monroe in coach Nick Saban's first season. - Alabama/AP College Football

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 1: 1. Will Anderson Jr., Jr, OLB, Alabama, 6-3, 243,...In Alabama's resounding 55-0 season-opening win over Utah State Saturday, OLB Will Anderson quickly showed why he is NFL Draft Scout's top-rated player. His personal stats weren't huge - five total tackles, three solo - but his play was. In the first quarter, with the Tide leading 17-0, he blew up Utah State running back Logan Bonner, creating a vid that went viral as Anderson showed why he is called "The Terminator." - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

Both are at a high level. In Bama's 55-0 dismantling of Utah State, Battle was credited with four tackles and had no interceptions, but hey, they pitched a shutout and allowed only 136 total yards, including a mere 57 in the air. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout
