Potential Alabama starter reportedly has been shot in the leg


Alabama defensive tackle and projected starter Raekwon Davis has been treated DCH Regional Medical Center after reportedly being shot in the right leg. According to a report from the Tuscaloosa News, a stray bullet caught Davis in the leg early Sunday morning outside a bar.

"The victim told investigators he was standing outside of Bar 17 when he heard several gunshots and realized he had been shot in the right leg," Homicide Unit commander Capt. Gary Hood said. "The victim was uncooperative with investigators."

While getting hit with a bullet is generally an incredibly serious injury, it seems for now that Davis will be alright as the injury is reported to be a minor one. The 6-foot-7, 306-pound defensive tackle was expected to take over starting duties after recording four tackles and a sack last year as a freshman. There's no timeline yet on what his recovery will look like.
