Alabama gets devastating news during blowout of Texas A&M @ByJoeFleming/Twitter

UPDATE: Jackson has suffered a fractured leg

Alabama’s thrashing of Texas A&M could only be dampened by the injury of standout defensive back Eddie Jackson.

Jackson suffered an injury after fielding a punt and was later carted off the field.

A 6’0″ senior out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Jackson has 21 tackles on the season and one interception return for a touchdown.

Jackson reportedly could not put any pressure on his left leg. Jackson previously suffered an ACL tear in 2014.

Alabama has an off week before matching up with LSU on November 5.

We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
