An apparent shoulder injury caused Texas A&M defensive back Erick Young to leave the game against Alabama in the first quarter. 

The injury occurred with 5:22 left in the first quarter. 

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Young walked back to the locker room under his own power. He had one tackle before leaving the game. 

It was the second first-quarter injury for Texas A&M, which lost offensive lineman Grayson Reed to a leg injury earlier in the first quarter.
