Barrett Jones is a hoss. He was hurt in the first half of the first game against LSU, but kept on playing. Impressive:
One quarter into Alabama’s biggest game of the season, left tackle Barrett Jones felt something in his ankle give. It was a familiar feeling, but he wasn’t about to give up.
“I got up and stayed in until the end of that drive, and I came back on the sidelines … and I said I’ll just try to play through it,” Jones said, reflecting on the Crimson Tide’s 9-6 overtime loss to LSU on Nov. 5.
On the next drive, Jones felt worse pain in his ankle. Now he not only was down, but wasn’t he out?
That’s how it looked when he went to the locker room, but he soon returned. When Alabama got the ball back, he returned to the field, and he played the rest of the game.
