The sun was back out Wednesday, which means so were warmer temperatures at Alabama football practice. Here are some observations from the media viewing period:
-With today being the first day of classes, it was the first time walk-ons could practice with the team. There is a 105-guy limit during camp, so they couldn’t participate.
-Running back Eddie Lacy (turf toe, sprained ankle and knee) did not have his ankle as heavily wrapped as he did Tuesday. He did not wear a black no-contact jersey, which means he was not limited, per se, but during the media viewing period, he stood on the sideline and observed. T.J. Yeldon, Jalston Fowler, Dee Hart and Kenyan Drake took reps during drills.
-Wide receiver Amari Cooper (foot) wore a black no-contact jersey and rode a stationary bike for the second day in a row.
-Backup center Ryan Kelly (ankle) was not limited.
-Linebacker Adrian Hubbard is still wearing a sleeve on his left arm to protect his sprained elbow. He was not limited in any way.
-Brandon Ivory worked alongside first team defensive linemen Jesse Williams and Damion Square in one of the drills. Quinton Dial and Ed Stinson also rotated in next to Williams and Square. Jeoffrey Pagan looked to be working with the second team.
-Williams was again partnered up with promising freshman lineman Darren Lake on other defensive line drills. Mentor in the making?
Below is a video of the defensive line going through drills.
