Two of the three suspended players back at practice today
The Alabama football team practiced inside the Hank Crisp indoor practice facility for the first time this August. The Tide was back in full pads again after Wednesday’s two-a-day.
With the team working indoors the media get a different look at the lineman and running backs due to the way the drills are set up. Honestly, I probably should have saved the notes from last night’s o-line and running backs for today. The order was about the same for each and the drills were the same as well.
The biggest news coming out of today was that two of the three suspended players returned to practice. Defensive linemen Jarran Reed and Brandon Ivory both in helmet and shorts and were mostly watching the defense work through drills. NCAA rules state that there is a five day acclimation period:
“All schools must respect a five-day acclimatization period at the start of the preseason. During this time, athletes may engage in no more than one conditioning, speed, strength or agility test or one on-field practice per day of no more than three hours and one walk-through without gear.”
Linebacker Tim Williams was not seen during the viewing session.
With defensive end A’Shawn Robinson still not on the field for the third straight practice after injuring his knee, the site of Reed and Ivory should ease some of the stress on the D-line.
Alabama has its second two-a-day coming up on Friday before its first scrimmage on Saturday.
