Scarbrough had been battling injuries all season, but he had been on a roll at the end of the season when healthy. Scarbrough had rushed for two touchdowns in each of Alabama’s last three games, including a 180-yard performance against Washington in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

Scarbrough may miss spring practices with the injury, but a broken leg shouldn’t impact his status for next season.

Bo was born in Atlanta, GA, and has always been a savvy sports follower. He attended Georgia Tech and has previously worked with ESPN TrueHoop, HawksHoop, and the Georgia Tech Newsroom. He covers national college football for FanBuzz.
