Alabama’s Robert Foster playing through pain

He shared most valuable player honors with teammate and fellow redshirt sophomore receiver ArDarius Stewart after a solid A-Day performance, yet Robert Foster shares something in common with sophomore left tackle Cam Robinson, a strong pain threshold.

Robinson played through injuries in multiple games last season and sustained a sprained knee during the first week of fall practice. He shook it off and return to work the next week.

Foster sprained his MCL (knee) in Alabama’s first scrimmage game last week, per Matt Zenitz of AL.com. The former five-star prospect eyes a starting role on this year’s offense, in the absence of Amari Cooper, DeAndrew White and Christion Jones.

He totaled only six receptions for 44 yards in 2014.

Both Foster and Stewart have led wide receivers through drills in practice. Foster has been spotted near the end of the line this week, but continues to display consistency.

He caught six passes for 125 yards in Alabama’s spring game.
