TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — The Crimson Tide went through a second straight day practicing inside the indoor facility. That will be routine for the week, considering Saturday’s SEC Championship Game will be inside the Georgia Dome.
Alabama true freshman safety Eddie Williams got some work with the scout team as a wide receiver. He wore No. 12, which is the jersey number of Georgia’s Tavarres King, who is 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds. Williams stands 6-3 and 204 and came to Alabama as a prospect to play either receiver or defensive back.
Noseguard Brandon Ivory (ankle) stood and watched for the media viewing period, which covered about 16 minutes. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday that Ivory should be able to play Saturday.
Offensive guard Chance Warmack wore a heavy tape job on his hand, which is protecting an injured finger. He has said the tape looks worse that it actually is.
Here’s a short video of the Alabama receivers today, which gives you a look at how Kevin Norwood (83) and Chris Black (5) are running. They both looked fine at practice. Norwood, who has struggled with a leg injury this week, had a good week of practice last week, and it paid off with five catches and a pair of touchdowns against Auburn.
Why shoot receivers for the second straight day? Well, they practice the closest to where we’re allowed to stand when the Tide works out inside.
