Alabama defensive back and special teams star Eddie Jackson will miss the remainder of the season due to an injury suffered against Texas A&M Saturday.

During his post-game press conference, Nick Saban announced that Jackson will be out for the year to due to a fractured leg.

Following the game, Jackson took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support.

Jackson is not only a great football player, but he’s a leader on Alabama’s team and defense. His presence will certainly be missed this season.
