Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough sustained a broken bone in his lower right leg during the second half of Monday night's 35-31 loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff Championship, ESPN reports.

Scarbrough was injured on a rushing attempt with 2:19 remaining in the third quarter as he was dragged down from behind. He walked to the sideline under his own power, but was later spotted limping to the locker room.

Before departing, Scarbrough was relied upon heavily as the Crimson Tide's primary offensive weapon. He totaled a game-high 93 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns on 16 carries.

"Not to have him was probably a little bit of a disadvantage for us," Alabama coach Nick Saban said after the game.

Scarbrough rushed for 812 yards and 11 touchdowns over 15 games with the Crimson Tide in 2016. He came on strong in the postseason, totaling 364 yards and six touchdowns in the SEC Championship Game against Florida, the CFP semifinal against Washington and the loss to Clemson.
