You never want to see anyone get hurt. It’s one of the worst parts about sports, and you definitely never want to see a superstar go down.
Waddle is one of the most electric players in the country, and his season is officially done. Nick Saban’s reaction is nothing short of heartbreaking.

Damn, this honestly just sucks, and there’s no other way to put it. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Alabama fanbase. Get well soon, Waddle.
