Nick Saban insists Alabama has been 'a little left-handed' since Bryce Young's injury vs. Arkansas
Nick Saban knows his team has felt a little off since Bryce Young suffered an injury against Arkansas in Week 5.
Young went down in the 2nd quarter of the Arkansas game with a should injury and would not return. Jalen Milroe filled in at QB, and for a stretch, it appeared the Razorbacks would keep the game close. Ultimately, the Tide pulled away and ended up winning 49-26 without their star QB.
Young will miss the next game, a game in which the Tide narrowly escaped defeat at the hands of Texas A&M. Young returned for the Week 7 matchup with Tennessee, but was not able to secure the victory in Knoxville.
Saban knows that his team has not performed up to Alabama standards as of late, saying they have been “a little bit left-handed.”
Saban said #Alabama has been “a little bit left-handed” ever since Bryce Young got hurt at Arkansas.
“We’ve been a little bit out of sorts. I really challenged the players to be able to do things better, whether it’s run the ball, run routes better, make more explosive plays.”

The Tide were ranked just outside of the top 4 in the initial CFP rankings, but could easily move back in with a strong finish. The Tide will travel to Death Valley to take on the LSU Tigers in Week 10.
