Is DeVonta Smith hurt?

DeVonta Smith Discusses His Hand Injury During Alabama's championship triumph against the Ohio State Buckeyes earlier this year, the 2020-21 Heisman Trophy winner sustained a hand injury. It has not yet healed. In fact, NFL Network's James Palmer stated that Smith's finger is still "purple."

Smith told reporters during an interview this week that he is "still working on it" and that his finger remains "the same color as purple." He added that he has been using ice and heat to help ease the pain of the injury.

The Crimson Tide quarterback was expected to miss time due to the injury but ended up playing every minute of Alabama's 45-39 win over the OSU in the Fiesta Bowl. The team went on to claim its fifth national title in school history.

Smith was drafted second overall by the Lions after winning the Heisman Trophy. He will begin training camp with the team and is expected to be their starter from the beginning. However, he could lose this job to Tua Tagovailoa if the former UA student-athlete returns from his own hand injury.

In other news related to Smith, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this offseason that the All-American suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee last season and had surgery to repair the damage. The injury forced him to miss the final six games of the 2019 campaign.

Did DeVonta Smith get hurt in the national championship?

Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith suffered a finger injury on his right hand during the third quarter of Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship Game. After the game, Alabama coach Nick Saban told reporters that one of Smith's fingers was dislocated. "He got injured tonight," Saban said. "We'll see what tomorrow brings." With Smith out for the season, Alabama will be looking for someone to step up and fill the void.

Smith, a junior, led the Crimson Tide with 1,047 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this year. He also added two more scores as a returner. His loss will be a huge one for Alabama, who needs all the help it can get after losing both its starting quarterbacks to injuries. Jake Coker is expected to replace Smith at some point this week when Alabama faces LSU in a playoff semifinal game on Thursday.

LSU will be missing several key players itself after last week's 45-40 win over Florida in the other semifinal. Center Oday Akol, a senior, and defensive end Jermauria Rasco, a sophomore, are both out for the Tigers with ankle injuries. Linebacker Anthony Johnson, a junior, is also sidelined after suffering a knee injury in Week 10 against Texas A&M.

Is DeVonta Smith’s hand OK?

Former Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith dislocated and tore ligaments in his finger during the team's national title game victory over Ohio State.... The injury occurred when Smith attempted to catch a pass with just under 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

He will be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Smith was considered one of the top receivers in college football before the injury. He finished the year with 33 catches for 462 yards and five touchdowns.

The Crimson Tide won their third straight championship with an 18-15 win over Ohio State in Pasadena, California. It was their second title in three years after Nick Saban's crew defeated Oregon 49-42 in 2014. This is Alabama's ninth overall championship and fifth under Saban.

In other news, defensive end Raekwon Davis has been dismissed from the team for violating NCAA rules. In December 2016, he was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernality. He had been suspended from the team earlier that month following his arrest.

Coach Saban said in a statement that they are "disappointed" by Davis' behavior but that they believe he can become a productive member of society once again.
