Wednesday practice report
Fall weather rolled into Tuscaloosa on Tuesday evening and created perhaps one of the more friendly practicing environments the Crimson Tide has endured this fall. Alabama practiced in mid-70 degree weather with mostly clear skies as it continued preparing for the fourth game of the season and the second home game of the season on Saturday against Florida Atlantic.
Senior Dee Milliner sported extra padding on his right wrist during the media observation period. Milliner was seen wearing a light brace/cast during Tuesday’s practice on the hand, which is the same one he injured during the season opener against Michigan.
Senior defensive end Quinton Dial did not have a ton of padding on his arm as he did on Tuesday, but he continued to wear extra support during drills.
The same group that worked at the front of the defensive line during drills on Tuesday began drills at the front of the line on Wednesday. Jesse Williams, Damion Square and Ed Stinson were the three players working with the first group as the unit went through drills.
Freshman linebacker Denzel Devall, who recorded his first collegiate sack against Arkansas, is a very impressive looking athlete. While he may not see the field a ton during the 2012 season, the experience he will gain learning from such a talented core group of linebackers will go a long way in his development as a player.
“Denzel has been doing a good job. Working hard, doing what the coaches ask of him,” linebacker Adrian Hubbard said on Wednesday.
The Tide will hit the practice field tomorrow to continue working towards Saturday’s game against Florida Atlantic. The game is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. CT at Bryant-Denny Stadium and will be televised on pay-per-view.
