Nick Saban calls AJ McCarron a liar over injury saga

Former Alabama QB AJ McCarron grabbed the headlines this past weekend and it wasn't because he got drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals.

That negative attention came because after being taken in the fifth round in Radio City Music Hall, New York, while on Sirius Radio, McCarron referenced that he “sacrificed a lot for Alabama” in his time there under the coaching of Nick Saban, including playing through some injuries that we didn't know about.

“A lot of people don’t realize I wasn’t healthy at Alabama. … I played through a lot of injuries, and we never leaked it because that’s just the way it is,” McCarron said.

Well Saban addressed the remarks, and he doesn’t seem to know about any injuries that McCarron played through.

“Well, he never said any of those things to me,” Saban said. “... But we all have to be responsible for our own self-determination, too. And evaluate what we did that might have created that.”

A lot of people were left upset by the Quarterback's comments, especially the people that used to cheer for McCarron who felt like he was throwing the side under the bus after all he did there.
