Alabama suffered a scare to its talented wide receiving unit on Monday as a report surfaced via Matt Zenitz of AL.com, concerning Jerry Jeudy having surgery on his knee.
The rising sophomore and five-star recruit sustained a meniscus injury; however, it is very possible that he can return before the end of spring practice. A native of Deerfield Beach, Fla., Jeudy was one of five receivers that signed in the Crimson Tide’s 2017 class – joining Devonta Smith, Henry Ruggs III, Tyrell Shavers and Chadarius Townsend.
Jeudy caught 14 passes last season for 264 receiving yards with two touchdowns and is in position to start in the fall.
An hour after Zenitz released the story, Jeudy confirmed it on Twitter with ‘minor setback for a major comeback.’
Minor set back for a MAJOR comeback 💪🏿 https://t.co/1LZpgJ5bet
