Alabama QB Greg McElroy Has Cracked Bone in Right Hand

After completing 5-of-8 passes for 36 yards, University of Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy left Saturday's Senior Bowl in the fourth quarter with a right hand injury.

While completing his throwing motion, McElroy banged his hand against the back of Mississippi State offensive tackle Derek Sherrod's helmet. McElroy air-mailed his next pass attempt, and X-Rays afterwards showed that McElroy has a cracked bone near the thumb on his passing hand, the Mobile Press-Register reports.

"I had no feeling the rest of the series," McElroy said. "The ball was kind of sporadic. I couldn't get a grip on the ball. I still can't get a grip on the ball. I think it will be OK."

McElroy is expected to about two weeks of throwing.
