Number 1 Alabama Crimson Tide loses running back Jase McClellan to a knee injury that is ‘not good’

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama’s 42-21 win over Ole Miss on Saturday came at a cost, as receding Jase McClellan suffered what is believed to be a significant knee injury.

McClellan is second on the team with five total touchdowns – three receiving, one rushing and one returning a blocked punt.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said the initial outlook is “not good.”

“I think he will probably be out for a while,” he said.

With McClellan out, Alabama relied heavily on Brian Robinson starting running back against Ole Miss. The fifth-year senior carried the ball 36 times for 171 yards—both were career highs.

Roydell Williams also received three carries.

Sophomore quarterback Bryce Young completed 21 of 27 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Number 1 Alabama will play at number 15 Texas A&M next Saturday.
