Losing its most dynamic player left Alabama in no mood to celebrate — not even a big win over a longtime rival.

Wide receiver Jaylen Waddle broke his right ankle on the opening kickoff, about the only thing that didn’t go the Crimson Tide’s way in a 48-17 victory over Tennessee.

Mac Jones threw for 387 yards and ran for a touchdown, and Najee Harris ran for three more TDs as No. 2 Alabama added the 14th straight win in this rivalry.

The Crimson Tide outgained Tennessee 587-302. But playing the Vols proved costly for Alabama a second straight season. A year ago, Tua Tagovailoa hurt an ankle in the second quarter and missed the next game against Arkansas.

Waddle rolled his right ankle as he was tackled on the opening kickoff and was taken by cart to the locker room.
