Alabama football star Jalen Hurts was held out of the Crimson Tide’s shutout win over No. 3 LSU on Saturday, November 3 while he recovers surgery. The backup signal-caller’s surgery has been described as a “minor” surgery, but at least one person is refuting that report.
Hurts’ brother, Averion Hurts, took to social media to provide an update on his brother and made it clear that there is no such thing as a “minor” procedure.
“There is absolutely no such thing as a ‘minor surgery.’ Lil bro can’t even move around like he want to . But there’s no timing like God’s timing . He will have you back when HE feels the time is right . Nothing anyone else says matters,” he wrote on Twitter.
The good news for Crimson Tide fans, however, is that head coach Nick Saban has said that Hurts has been looking good during his recovery.
Alabama currently sits as the unanimous No. 1 team in the nation, so there is no reason for the Crimson Tide to rush him back especially with starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa playing at a Heisman level.
Next up for Alabama is a meeting with No. 18 Mississippi State on Saturday, November 10. Kickoff at Bryant-Denny Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
