Alabama’s Jase McClellan Endures Knee Injury, ‘Probably Out For a While’
Alabama sophomore running back Jase McClellan left the Crimson Tide's home matchup against the No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels. McClellan, according to Nick Saban endured a knee injury and the initial outlook is "not good".
“Jase has a knee injury the initial report on it is not good, but until we do an MRI, we don’t know for sure. But I think he’s probably gonna be out for a while," said Saban.
McClellan has been a large part of the Alabama offense in his second year at The Capstone. Prior to his injury, against Ole Miss, he took six carries for 28 yards and hauled in a reception for 11 yards.
Through five games he contributed 40 carries for 191 yards and one touchdown while catching 10 passes for 97 yards and three touchdowns.
McClellan's opportunities were given to super senior Brian Robinson. The Hillcrest High School alum took 36 carries 171 for four touchdowns.
The Crimson Tide will use Robinson, Roydell Williams and Trey Sanders as the running backs going forward.
