Nick Saban provided an injury update on Bryce Young after the quarterback got hurt in Alabama’s 49-26 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

Young was scrambling while under pressure during the second quarter against the Razorbacks. He tried to throw the ball away as he was going to the ground, which led him to injure his shoulder (video here).

Young stayed in the game for one more play and threw an incompletion. He then exited the game and received medical attention. Backup quarterback Jalen Milroe replaced Young in the game.

After the game, Saban said that Young was day-to-day with a sprained AC joint.

Saban did not seem to be too concerned about Young’s long-term status.

Young was 7/13 for 173 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception prior to getting hurt. The junior quarterback is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Milroe rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown in place of Young.
