Alabama freshman running back Derrick Henry will miss the remainder of spring with a broken leg, ESPN's Alex Scarborough reports. Henry suffered the injury during Saturday's scrimmage.

Henry was the No. 5 running back in the class of 2013, according to Rivals.com, and one of seven freshmen to enroll early with the Crimson Tide in January. He set the national high school career rushing record (12,124 yards) at Yulee (Fla.) High after running for 4,261 yards during his standout senior campaign.
