He had his best game in the Capital One Bowl, making four tackles including a sack of Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins that knocked the Spartans quarterback out of the game.
The Crimson Tide held the seventh practice of the spring Friday afternoon and scrimmage for the first time Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The scrimmage is closed to the public.
