Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough proclaims his knee surgery a success

The latest in the Bo Scarbrough Chronicles saw the Alabama running back Tweeting Sunday he was set to undergo surgery on a knee he injured during a Friday scrimmage.

Scarbrough went under the knife Tuesday, proclaiming the surgery to repair his torn ACL a success.

(Although, if you stop and think about it, can you ever remember anyone announcing their surgery was one big botch job?)

Surgery went really good! Thank for all the prayers and support! ROLL TIDE ROLL!

Nick Saban said Wednesday Scarbrough was playing himself into the rotation to back up Derrick Henry during his successful run through spring ball.

“We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to get him back for the season,” Saban told “He was doing really, really well this spring practice. It happened late in the scrimmage. It was very unfortunate.” The good news? Scarbrough appears to already be on the mend.

Two day out of surgery and already can do a straight leg lift! It’s a blessing to be able to come back and work hard!

As things stand today, Buddy Pell and his 15 career rushing yards stand as the only experienced depth Alabama possesses.

Elsewhere in the Alabama infirmary, Saban said the injury to defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson is not serious and that the Tide will be “conservative” with him moving forward.
