The injury occurred in Saturday’s scrimmage, the school said.
Henry “had successful surgery this morning with Dr. Lyle Cain,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by the school. “With the support of our medical staff and the hard work and dedication Derrick has shown since he arrived, we are confident that he will make a full recovery for the start of camp this fall.”
Henry enrolled at Alabama in January after setting the national high school rushing record at Yulee (Fla.) High School. He was the Maxwell Football Club’s National High School Player of the Year.
