By Alabama News Network

Alabama freshman running back Derrick Henry has had surgery to repair a fractured fibula.
   
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says Dr. Lyle Cain performed a successful surgery on Monday for an injury sustained in a scrimmage two days earlier.
   
Saban says he's confident Henry will be fully recovered in time for preseason camp, citing the medical staff "and the hard work and dedication Derrick has shown since he arrived" in January.
   
Henry was one of the nation's top recruits after being named the national high school player of the year by several organizations. The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder ran for 4,261 yards as a senior at Yulee High School in Florida and broke Ken Hall's 51-year-old national high school rushing mark with 12,124 yards in his career.
   
Alabama's spring game is Saturday.
