Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle returned to the field on Monday as the Crimson Tide faced the Ohio State Buckeyes in the national championship in his first game since fracturing his ankle against Tennessee on Oct. 24.

During pregame warmups, it was clear that Waddle was still limping while running.

Update: Waddle was also seen limping during the game.

Despite the fact that it was Waddle’s decision to play in the game after being medically cleared by doctors, several NFL players called out Alabama for allowing him to risk injury before the NFL draft.
