According to early reports, it looks as if Drake has a leg injury. Back at Alabama, Drake had suffered a leg injury in his junior year but returned in his senior year to play an important part in Alabama’s national championship run that season.
In that game, he made a crucial return back for a touchdown that would help propel the Crimson Tide over the Clemson Tigers, 45-40 in the 2017 national championship game.
This season for the Raiders, Drake has rushed for 254 yards and 2 touchdowns. Last year, Drake almost rushed for a 1,000 and is the backup to former Alabama teammate Josh Jacobs.
