Tide's Brian Vogler scores first college touchdown

It was a good news, bad news kind of Saturday night for Alabama tight end Brian Vogler.

The former Brookstone standout scored the first touchdown of his collegiate career in the win over Mississipi State. But he also sprained his right foot in the fourth quarter and had to limp off the field.

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."

Vogler, who is used primarily as a blocker, has eight catches this season for 71 yards.

The junior had seven catches in the first five games, but the catch against Mississippi State was the first one since the Georgia State game on Oct. 5.

The touchdown catch Saturday came in the second quarter on an 18-yard pass from AJ McCarron. The score gave Alabama a 10-0 lead.

McCarron hit Vogler at the 3-yard line. After eluding a tackler, Vogler dove into the end zone with 20 seconds left before intermission.
