He has faced adversity throughout his life, and the ankle injury is nothing different for Jaylen Waddle.

A junior from Houston, Texas, he got hurt on the opening kickoff against Tennessee.

The verdict was a highly sprained right ankle with a fracture involved. He made it through the surgery, but Nick Saban stated the talented Alabama wide receiver would miss the remainder of the season.
