MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Ohio State running back Trey Sermon was taken to the locker room after the Buckeyes’ first drive in the College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T against Alabama on Monday night.
Sermon was injured on his only carry, which went for 2 yards on first down. When he got to the sideline, he appeared to favor his left shoulder.
As he was taken to the locker room, Sermon’s left arm was dangling loosely at his side. ESPN’s Maria Taylor reported that Sermon tried to lift his left arm on the sideline and couldn’t.
Sermon has been a major key to the Buckeyes’ offense over the past two games, rushing for a combined 524 yards in wins over Northwestern in the Big Ten championship game and Clemson in the CFP semifinal at the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
Master Teague, who missed last week’s game against the Tigers, replaced Sermon at running back and promptly scored on an 8-yard run as the Buckeyes tied the game at 7.
