Following Alabama’s 55-3 victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday, head coach Nick Saban addressed the media and provided a few updates on the Crimson Tide’s injuries from the game.

Defensive lineman Byron Young left the game against the Commodores after spending an extended period of time in the team’s medical tent. He would eventually be taken back to the locker room on a golf cart and returned to the sidelines with crutches and a boot on his right leg.

“He’s got a sprained ankle,” Saban said. “That’s the only update I got.”

Young helped anchor a defensive line that held the Commodores to 14 rushing yards on the night and 129 total yards. The entire defensive front also recorded eight tackles for loss and five sacks as it continued its dominant streak in the trenches.
