WATCH: Nick Saban previews TAMU, updates injuries and talks Alabama’s punting game

After being off on last week, Nick Saban addressed local reporters on Monday.

He previewed Alabama’s matchup with Texas A&M and gave praise to Aggies’ quarterback, Kellen Mond.

Saban said the junior can make all the throws on the field and is a very good runner. Discipline and gap assignment football will be very critical for the Crimson Tide’s defense.

Along with speaking on TAMU, Saban also updated injuries on Chris Owens (offensive line) and Will Reichard (placekicker). He has Owens listed as ‘questionable’ with him having a slight knee issue over the bye week.

While the Aggies have strong specialists in the kicking game, Saban wants to see improvement from Alabama’s punters.

Reichard, who sustained a hip flexor in the Tide’s win over Southern Mississippi, will perform kicking duties this week for the first time in two weeks. He made both of his extra points versus the Golden Eagles, prior to the mishap on an ensuing kickoff.

Alabama will have practice at 4:00 p.m.
