Photo: Alabama Quarterback A.J. McCarron Spotted With Walking Boot

Oh boy.

Update: McCarron is wearing the boot due to an ingrown toenail and will be playing tomorrow.

Earlier: Alabama is heavily favored over Virginia Tech in this weekend's Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, considering the Tide won last year's BCS National Championship Game and have one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the country in A.J. McCarron. But they may have a little issue they've stayed mum about ahead of the matchup - McCarron's bruised foot.

McCarron was spotted by ESPN's Cole Cubelic getting off of the team bus in a walking boot tonight. Check it out:

It was reported in early August that McCarron had a bruised right foot, but that was over three weeks ago. Is Nick Saban being overly cautious, or do Bama fans have something to worry about here?
