A few days before Oklahoma's Sugar Bowl upset of Alabama, cornerback Aaron Colvin said he had no regrets about returning for a senior season that ended up being filled with injuries.

“I definitely had a couple curveballs,” Colvin said. “But at the end of the day, I don't regret my decision. I don't have any regrets.”

The former Sooner was thrown another curveball Tuesday afternoon, when he tore his ACL during the second day of Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala.

Ken Sarnoff, Colvin's agent, confirmed the severity of Colvin's injury on Twitter.

It's unclear at this point what impact the injury will have on Colvin's NFL Draft stock, but the ACL tear couldn't have come at a worse time. The annual Senior Bowl is where many NFL prospects have their best opportunity to impress scouts and executives.

Colvin, a former Owasso High standout, started 36 games throughout his OU football career and appeared in 50.

He considered leaving school after his junior season and entering the 2013 NFL Draft, but opted to return and pursue several unfulfilled goals in college.
