Unfortunately, injuries are a part of football. Some of Alabama football’s best players have struggled with injuries, and that has carried on into the NFL. With rigorous training and games, it is expected for players to get hurt. At their NFL training camps, two former Tide athletes got hurt.

DeVonta Smith suffered an MCL sprain with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Heisman receiver will be week-to-week as training camp continues, putting his eligibility for Philly’s first preseason game in question.
