Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle was carted off the field and later taken by ambulance to a local hospital after injuring his lower right leg on the opening kickoff against Tennessee on Saturday afternoon.

Waddle, who is considered to be a likely first-round pick in next year’s NFL draft, favored his right ankle after a Tennessee defender rolled up on him from behind during a kick return. He reportedly received an X-ray before being loaded into an ambulance.

In his first four games of the season, Waddle had 25 catches for 557 yards and four touchdowns.
