Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron had surgery on his toe Thursday to fix an infection.
The senior quarterback will play in Saturday’s game against Virgina Tech.
McCarron had a toe nail removed and later showed up in a walking boot in Atlanta, site of today’s game. Naturally this caused an uproar on social media but according to reports there is no concern amongst Alabama.
