PRACTICE REPORT: Alabama football begins prep for Mississippi StateBy Terrin Waack | 11/07/2016 5:01pm
After returning from its victory in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, over LSU, the Alabama football team's preparation for Mississippi State officially started on Monday.
Reuben Foster led the linebackers in a variety of drills. He was followed by Shaun Dion Hamilton as the group practiced shuffling then making a cut to catch a pass, which simulates a short interception. They also worked on the sled to practice blocking.
Also, Foster had his left wrist wrapped up in a cast. The senior still ran through every drill. It didn’t seem to affect him.

- The offensive line spent time work on the shoot and practiced blocking. Alphonse Taylor, however, was not spotted within the group. He has been recovering from a concussion.
- The quarterbacks, such as Jalen Hurts and Cooper Bateman, worked with the running backs. Damien Harris led the backs as the broke left to grab the football and take off running.
- Coach Nick Saban worked with the secondary as it cleaned up one-on-one coverage.
- ArDarius Steward led the wide receivers in a drill where they were required to get past a defender and catch a pass on the run. Calvin Ridley, Trevon Digss and Gehrig Dieter followed in order.
