Alabama alters depth chart ahead of Ole Miss

Alabama football altered its game-day depth chart ahead of its matchup against Ole Miss.

In past weeks the word “or” was used to separate the three quarterbacks competing for the starting job representing the fact that any could be the starter. But after Nick Saban named Jalen Milroe the starter on Monday, “or” is no longer being used to group the quarterbacks.

“Jalen really showed the leadership that I was looking for during the game in terms of supporting his teammates and doing the things he needed to do,” Saban said to the media on Monday. “He’s had the opportunity to play. So has the other guys. Jalen played the best of all those guys, and I think he’s earned the opportunity to be the quarterback.”

Behind Milroe serving as the backup quarterback is Ty Simpson, who took the majority of the reps with the second team during practice this week for the Crimson Tide. Behind Simpson is Notre Dame transfer Tyler Buchner who recorded his first career start with Alabama last week against USF but replaced partway through the game.
