It was physical. Everyone expected it. And Alabama is feeling the effect this morning and certainly into next week.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban updated the following injuries after the game:
- Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick got a concussion defending a fourth quarter punt. He walked to the locker room a few minutes later with glassy eyes. LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu was flagged 15 yards for the hit that left Kirkpatrick on the ground. Saban said Kirkpatrick was knocked out for a few seconds.
- Wide receiver Marquis Maze sprained his ankle in the second half, but came back and played the rest of the game.
- Left tackle Barrett Jones also sprained his ankle on the play when AJ McCarron was intercepted in the third quarter. He went to the locker room, but ran back without missing a series. Jones was obviously hobbled, but played through it.
