TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama returned to the practice field on Monday to begin preparing for Mississippi State.
No. 1 Alabama (9-0, 6-0 SEC) hosts the Bulldogs (4-5, 2-3) on Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.
What we saw
- Running back Bo Scarbrough (knee) was limited during the media viewing period. Scarbrough stood around and held two football, but did not participate in any drills. Scarbrough twisted his knee in Alabama’s win at LSU on Saturday. He wore a brace on his right knee.
- There was no sign of offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor during the viewing period. There’s a chance Taylor could have been in the training room or weight room, but he was not on the field when we were out there. Taylor has missed Alabama’s last three games. He did not make the trip to LSU.
- Linebacker Reuben Foster practiced with a club on his left hand. Foster didn’t strike the sled with the rest of the inside linebackers, but he did go through the other drills. Foster made a one-hand catch during one of the drills.
- Wide receiver Raheem Falkins did not participate in any drills. He stood off to the side with a staff member.
- There was a friendly back-and-forth between the inside linebackers and defensive backs. The drills for the two groups overlapped a little, and the defensive backs dropped a couple of balls near the linebackers. It was playful fun between teammates on a Monday.
