Video: Kenyan Drake Injury (Graphic Footage)

The most gruesome injury in all of sports over the weekend was Kenyan Drake’s broken left leg. As you can see from the video, Drake’s foot nearly got spun completely around as he suffered what was certainly a season-ending injury.

Michael Casagrande of reported that Drake has already had surgery, and that Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban said that it would be at least eight to ten weeks before Drake could even think about playing football again.

Kenyan’s teammate and Alabama left guard Arie Kounadjio recalled the brutal injury, but admitted that in the moment he thought Drake was going to be fine.

“It was horrible. He looked like he was in a lot of pain but he’s a tough guy,” said Kounadjio. “I have faith in Christ and the Lord. I figured that eventually he would be all right. I figured nowadays an injury it will not take you out all the time.”

It seemed that there was still a bit of hesitance by the Crimson Tide following Drake’s injury as the were flagged for a false start on the subsequent play after a lengthy delay in action, followed by two incomplete passes that led to a punt on fourth down.

Kenyan Drake’s production will certainly be hard for Alabama to replace as he’s compiled 271 yards from scrimmage, adding six touchdowns on top of that.

Alabama coach Nick Saban was asked about Drake’s season-ending injury and what they would have to do to replace him.

“I don’t think there’s any question about the fact that when you lose a player like that it does have some impact,” Saban said. ” But I do think we have other players that can do those things. Now they’re going to get the opportunity to do it and we’re going to have to have some other people to step up.”

The Alabama Crimson Tide are looking to bounce back from a devastating upset loss to Ole Miss, and losing a versatile player like Kenyan Drake will certainly have an impact on the rest of their season. You can see how the Tide are able to replace him when they hit the road to take on the 3-2 Arkansas Razorbacks at 3 p.m. on ESPN.
