College football likely lost arguably its most electrifying offensive player for the season on Saturday, and potentially for his college career, when Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle injured his right ankle in Alabama’s 48-17 win over rival Tennessee.

Waddle was injured on the opening kickoff when he was tackled from behind by Volunteers LB Kenneth George, and got his right foot caught between George’s body and the turf.

“He’s got a very similar to what Kenyan Drake had (at Alabama in 2014), the high ankle sprain but also a fracture,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said following the victory. “They’ll probably have to do surgery on him.

A junior, Waddle was in the midst of his best season as a receiver, having caught 25 passes for 557 yards and four touchdowns in only four games prior to Saturday. Entering the game, his 22.3 yards per catch average led the nation among receivers with 16 or more receptions.
