Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough suffered a knee injury during practice on Friday.
Scarbrough signed with the Crimson Tide as a member of the 2014 recruiting class, but did not enroll until this January because of academics. Rivals.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:
Everything happen for a reason! Long as I keep god out front he got my back! I'll be back soon 🙏.. Thank Yall for the support!👍— Bo Scarbrough (@starbo06) April 4, 2015
