Nick Saban offers disgruntled answers in CBS Sports halftime interview
Bryce Young and his injured shoulder were top of mind for Jenny Dell and Nick Saban in a halftime interview on the “SEC on CBS” as Alabama held a 28-7 lead on Arkansas.
“Well, he’s got a shoulder injury, I don’t know the extent of it. I don’t know how bad it is,” Saban said. “They worked on him inside so I’ll probably see when we go in.”
Dell then asked Saban if Jalen Milroe would continue to play if Young was out for the second half.
“If Bryce can’t play, Milroe’s going to play,” Saban said.
Young was 7-for-13 passing for 173 yards in the first half, with a touchdown and interception. He appeared to suffer a shoulder injury, and was taken to the injury tent on the sideline. CBS Sports analyst Gary Danielson suggested that the injury appeared to happen on a sideline tackle by Drew Sanders.
Milroe was 3-for-5 passing for 62 yards with a touchdown, and he also had a rushing touchdown on the drive when he took over for Young.
