ESPN: McCarron quietly makes case for Heisman
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- AJ McCarron scrambled, slid and felt the brace on his right leg slip. The black hunk of plastic and metal protecting his injured knee came loose, and the quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide had to play through it.
What did he do the following play? Run the ball, of course.
As the referees measured to see if the run was good enough for a first down, trainers rushed over to help McCarron with the brace. It wouldn't get in place, so they simply ripped it off.
