Coaching Staff Players of the Week: Missouri week

The Alabama coaching staff has selected its Players of the Week for the week of the Missouri game, and they are as follows.

Offense: Barrett Jones, Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon. Jones helped the offense grade at 92 percent with the coaching staff while committing no penalties and having no bad snaps. Jones also led the offensive line to allow no sacks and no hurries. Lacy carried the ball 18 times for a career-high 177 yards against the Tigers for three touchdowns, one of them on a 73-yard run. Yeldon also had a career-high with 144 yards on 18 carries and two scores, one of them completed with an acrobatic leap into the endzone.

Defense: C.J. Mosley and Dee Milliner. Mosley continued his streak, being named a Player of the Week every week of the season, after notching 12 tackles, including one sack, to go along with a fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry. Mosley was also named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week. Milliner tallied four tackles, one for a loss, in addition to a forced fumble and a pass break-up.

Special Teams: Landon Collins, Brent Calloway and Jeremy Shelley. Collins, a true freshman, blocked a punt in the first quarter that set Alabama up for a touchdown. Calloway had two tackles on special teams units, one of them inside the 20. Shelley has yet to miss a kick this season after a 6-for-6 performance on extra points in Columbia.
