TUSCALOOSA -- Alabama tight end Brian Vogler limped off the field in the fourth quarter of the Crimson Tide’s 20-7 win at Mississippi State.
After the game, Vogler was on crutches with ice on his right foot. Tide coach Nick Saban said Vogler sprained his ankle during his postgame news conference. On Monday, Saban said Vogler will be “day to day.”
“He probably won’t do anything today and I don’t really know what day this week he’ll be able to get back into it,” Saban said. “We just have to evaluate those things day to day.”
True freshman tight end O.J. Howard took a high hit following quarterback AJ McCarron’s second interception. Howard didn’t return to the game.
“I think he will be fine,” Saban said. “He may be one of those guys that’s limited a little bit today, but I don’t think we’ll have any issues as the week progresses.”
Following the game, running T.J. Yeldon was seen walking with a protective boot on his right foot, but it was only precautionary.“He sprained his ankle a little bit,” Saban said. “I don't think it’s a bad thing. He finished the game on it. We put a guy in a protective boot pretty much for anything. If you had a corn on your toe, we would put you in a protective boot. And I agree with that. I think that’s a good thing. I’m not trying to say that it’s not something that we should do. It does help the guys recover, helps eliminate some swelling. We’ve had guys in boots two hours before the game.”
