Tide Linebacker Has Hip Injury
The huge play was Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley making an interception. The huge injury was Mosley being tackled by the man who threw the interception, LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson, and suffering an injury.
The Crimson Tide won its 14th national championship with a 21-0 win over the Tigers, a dominating defensive performance by Bama.
One of those defensive plays came midway through the third quarter. Alabama had a 12-0 lead when Jefferson was forced from the pocket. He tried to shovel the ball to tailback Spencer Ware, but the ball sailed high and Mosley, a 6-2, 234-pound sophomore from Theodore, picked it off. He was immediately hit by Jefferson, taken down with a clean tackle.
Mosley was unable to get up and was eventually carted from the field, taken to an examination room in the Superdome. On Tuesday, Alabama Coach Nick Saban said, "C.J. Mosley, we think, is okay. He had a dislocated hip, which they put back in. X-rays were okay, but we need to do an MRI, probably today or tomorrow, and if the MRI comes out okay and there wasn't any damage to the joint, he'll be fine in six weeks.
"If there are any bone chips or fragments, they'll have to scope [arthroscopic surgery to remove them]."
