Safe to say Alabama sophomore RB Josh Jacobs is one tough player.
On Thursday night, Jacobs revealed that he played with a broken ankle for most of the season, and that he was scheduled to have surgery Friday to repair it.
Jacobs was banged up in 2017. He missed some time to start the season with a hamstring injury, and then, he suffered the ankle injury in week five (against Ole Miss). That didn’t completely stop him though.
He rushed for 284 yards and one TD this season, while adding 13 catches for 168 yards and two TDs. All three of his carries came against Georgia in the two College Football Playoff games.
Jacobs shared the news via his Twitter account:
Lowkey nervous about having surgery tomorrow I’ve been playing on a broke ankle since week 5. It’s definitely been hard playing knowing that any play could be your last. I’m grateful and blessed to had finish the season much more coming soon #Blessed #Bama #RollTide #TheReturn
