I know y'all get tired of hearing this from me, but I'm highly confident nobody on these forums follows Alabama football closer than me.
I didn't want Tua, and I didn't want Waddle. Hopefully they both prove me wrong this season and some more to come, and I'll gladly eat crow. GLADLY!
But Waddle's injury was brutal. Much like Prothro's in my opinion, maybe not quite as sever, but it's what comes to my mind.
Prothro still walks around with a limp, a significant one. I expect the same from Waddle eventually.
It is a concern. If all he needed to do was run fast in a straight line, then he would probably be fine. However, we need him to be explosive in and out of cuts, and that puts a lot of pressure on the ankle. I am with you on this. I didn't want Tua or Waddle either, but now that we have them, I am rooting for them like crazy, because we need both of them to live up to their draft status.
