John Metchie is expected to miss the CFP after suffering what Bama officials believe to be a torn ACL in his left knee.
Metchie missed the second half after injuring his leg on quarterback Bryce Young’s 14-yard scramble with 56 seconds left in the first half. He was injured on a noncontact play while running a pass route and clutched his left knee when he fell to the turf. He walked off the field under his own power.
“John Metchie is probably going to be out now, and we have a couple other guys that may be injured,” Tide coach Nick Saban said. “It creates a lot of opportunity for a lot of other players. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get them to step up.”
