Current Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young is battling a shoulder injury during last week’s win over Arkansas. But will that stop him from playing against Texas A&M on Saturday?
Speaking to ESPN on Thursday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban announced that Young would make a game-time decision against the Aggies this weekend. He said Young is lobbying in hopes of making a debut.
“Bryce has been practicing, and all week, he’s been saying he can play,” Saban told Chris Low. “But it’s going to be a medical decision. We still have some time, and I’d like to talk to Bryce more. He’s the only one who knows how he feels because it’s going to be a pain-bearable thing.”
“He’s a tough kid and a great competitor. We’ll see where he is on game day.”
Alabama regained their status as the No. 1 team in the nation after their dominant victory over the Razorbacks. But playing Young this season is a big part of his success.
The reigning Heisman winner has completed 67.2 percent of his passes with just three interceptions for 1,202 passing yards and 14 touchdowns.
Bryce Young isn’t on pace to break record-breaking points in last year’s Heisman campaign, but if he has a big game against Texas A&M this Saturday, he’ll probably be in talks until the end.
