Kenyan Drake expected to miss two weeks with arm injury

The Alabama Crimson Tide are peaking at the right time as they are just one SEC win, or an Ole Miss loss, away from clinching the SEC West for the second year in a row and the fifth time in the last eight years.

They close out SEC play a week from Saturday when they face off with the Auburn Tigers in the Iron Bowl.

It looks like they will be missing a big part of their offense for the next few games. Running back Kenyan Drake went down with an apparent arm injury against Mississippi State on Saturday and he left the game with the diagnosis of a fractured arm.

According to ESPN, Drake will likely miss the last two weeks of the regular season while dealing with the injury. The Tide will now have to depend on true freshmen Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough to back up starter Derrick Henry.

Drake has ran for 333 yards and a touchdown, while catching 21 passes for 234 yards and a score this year. The Crimson Tide should be fine for the next two weeks, but not having Drake could possibly affect their strategy.
