Alabama LB Reuben Foster was spotted in the Crimson Tide’s medical tent during a 51-3 blowout vs. Mississippi State on Saturday, and he’s been wearing some protection on his left hand.
According to SEC Country’s Marq Burnett, Foster said in the moments following the win that he is dealing with a chipped bone in his left hand.

It would appear to be a relatively minor ailment for one of the cornerstone figures on the Alabama defense. With FCS opponent Chattanooga on the schedule next week, it will be interesting to see how the Crimson Tide utilizes Foster in the coming days.
Alabama finishes its season, as usual, with a SEC West showdown in the Iron Bowl against Auburn.
