In a reduced alignment, your linebacker reads are now strictly fullback and near back. On the snap of the football, the linebackers will take their freeze step and react to the back’s initial movement when a run comes to them. When initial movement is away from your linebackers, they will double free step to secure counteraction, then react to the back’s movement.
