Alabama head coach Anthony Grant did not appear very positive when discussing redshirt senior guard Andrew Steele’s status for Wednesday night’s rematch with Mississippi State. Steele was held out of Alabama’s win over South Carolina with soreness in his ankle.

“He’s doubtful for this game,” Grant said. “We’re still monitoring him, he’s still having some of the same issues we talked about before. We’ll give him as much rest as we can and get him to where he feels good and where he’s relatively pain-free as much as possible.”

Grant did not give a timetable for Steele’s return.

“I would say it’s a thing we manage day-to-day, game-to-game, week-to-week,” Grant said.

Alabama is 3-5 when Steele does not play this season compared to 14-3 when he does.
