The college football world sent numerous well wishes to Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle after he suffered a season-ending injury on Saturday.

Waddle, one of the most exciting players in the country, was ruled out for the season at halftime of Saturday’s game against Tennessee with a lower-leg injury. The injury prompted an outpouring of support for the wide receiver, including from former Alabama players and even a rival.

Among the ex-Alabama players to wish Waddle well were Mack Wilson, Raekwon Davis, and Mac Hereford.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor also had some words of encouragement for Waddle.

Perhaps most notably, Auburn wide receiver Anthony Schwartz put the rivalry aside to wish Waddle a speedy recovery.

Waddle suffered the injury on the opening kickoff. It’s probable that the next time we see him, it will be in the NFL.
