Derrick Henry Suffers Fibula Fracture
"Derrick Henry suffered a fractured fibula (leg bone) in Saturday's scrimmage and had successful surgery this morning with Dr. Lyle Cain," Alabama Coach Nick Saban said on Tuesday. "With the support of our medical staff and the hard work and dedication Derrick has shown since he arrived, we are confident that he will make a full recovery for the start of camp this fall."
Henry, from Yulee, Fla., enrolled at The University of Alabama in January to get an early start to his collegiate career. He set the national high school rushing record at Yulee High School and was the Maxwell Football Club's National High School Player of the Year.
Alabama's 2013 A-Day Game is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. (CDT) inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. The A-Day Game is once again free to the public and will be televised live on ESPN2.
