Alabama quarterback Bryce Young left Saturday’s game with a first-half shoulder injury after he was tackled out of bounds.

Young, who won the Heisman Trophy last season, did not return to the game.

Young injured his AC joint, the team announced.

“I think he’s OK,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said after the game. “He doesn’t have a serious injury. We didn’t think he could go back in the game today because I didn’t think he had much steam throwing the ball. He’s had these [injuries] before and in a few days he starts to respond pretty well. So we’ll just have to see how it goes and, you know, play it day-to-day.”

Alabama turned to backup quarterback Jalen Milroe, who returned in the Crimson Tide’s opening series of the third quarter. Milroe had a 22-yard touchdown pass to JoJo Earle and a 3-yard touchdown run.

Young, who exited with 10:54 remaining in the second quarter, was 7-for-13 for 173 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Including his first-half work Saturday, Young has thrown for 1,202 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions.
