Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough suffered a knee injury during practice on Friday.

Coach Nick Saban did not clarify about the nature of the injury, but AL.com reported that it's believed to be a torn ACL. 

Scarbrough signed with the Crimson Tide as a member of the 2014 recruiting class, but did not enroll until this January because of academicsRivals.com rated Scarbrough the No. 2 athlete and No. 16 player in the country.

The 6'2'', 235-pound Scarbrough was expected to compete for carries behind junior Derrick Henry.

The reported injury comes less than a week after the Tide dismissed running back Tyren Jones following an arrest for marijuana possession. In January, another running back, Altee Tenpenny, announced that he was leaving Alabama.

Scarbrough posted the following message to his Twittter account Friday evening:
