Alabama quarterback Bryce Young left Saturday's contest against Arkansas in the second quarter with a sprained shoulder, head coach Nick Saban said postgame.

“Bryce has a little AC sprain in his shoulder. I think he’s OK. He doesn’t have a serious injury,” Saban said. “We didn’t think it was. He couldn’t go back in the game today because I didn’t think he had much steam throwing the ball.”

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was replaced by Jalen Milroe.

Young was tackled while scrambling toward the sideline and was seen favoring his right shoulder on the ground. After a trip to the team's medical tent, he jogged to the locker room.

He returned to Alabama's sideline after halftime but did not re-enter the game. The Crimson Tide defeated the Razorbacks 49-26 with Young observing the entire second half.

Young appeared visibly frustrated by the ailment, with cameras catching him throwing his helmet to the ground on his way to get examined.

Young left the game having completed 7 of 13 pass attempts for 173 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. He also had a rushing score.

Considered one of the premier passers in the country, Young compiled 1,029 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and two interceptions through the first four games of the season.

The junior took home many of the sport's prestigious awards in 2021 after tallying 50 total touchdowns and 4,872 yards through the air.
