AJ McCarron tattoo
If you (like me) were unconvinced by the tightly cropped, unverifiable pics of what purported to be Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's oversized back tattoo that began floating around last week, you were right to be skeptical. Because it turns out the tat is actually on his chest:
During Alabama’s practices Tuesday and Wednesday, quarterback AJ McCarron looked as if his injured knee was sore, but not so much that he lost his sense of humor.
In a discussion after Tuesday’s workout about teammate Eddie Lacy’s 73-yard touchdown run against Missouri, McCarron deadpanned that he didn’t want to run all the way down to hold for the extra point.
“That’s probably the biggest thing. ... That was a long run, so I was kind of tired,” McCarron said, looking down, cleary trying to avoid smiling and giving away that he was joking.
Alabama coach Nick Saban revealed Sunday that McCarron has a bruised knee and would feel sore for a day or two. McCarron looked it as he’s participated in drills this week, limping slightly.
