TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — The Crimson Tide practiced outside in full pads today, and it looked like a typical Wednesday practice.
During the time we were allowed inside the gates, the only hiccup appeared to come after a defensive backs drill when the position coach got angry and made his players run through it again. He yelled they weren’t getting anything out of it.
You probably can guess the position coach: Nick Saban.
All of the injured players ran and looked athletic, including cornerback John Fulton (turf toe), running back T.J. Yeldon, and receivers Kenny Bell (foot) and Kevin Norwood (leg). There’s no reason to think they’ll be limited in Saturday’s game against Auburn.
We have video for you of Saban working with the defensive backs. He stopped the work for a moment at the beginning to yell and make the players do the drill again.
