TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — The Crimson Tide worked out inside its indoor practice facility for the third straight day. With Saturday’s game in the Georgia Dome, Alabama is committed to practicing inside for the week.
The Crimson Tide worked out in full pads for the second straight day. The only player who appeared slowed by an injury was noseguard Brandon Ivory (ankle), who was dressed out but didn’t participate in drills during the media viewing period.
Running back T.J. Yeldon (ankle) look good in the running back drills. Watching him also gave us time to notice walk-on Ben Howell (5-9, 194) wore No. 3 today for his scout-team duty. Georgia running back Todd Gurley (6-1, 218 pounds) wears No. 3.
Offensive guard Chance Warmack still has the heavy tape job on his left hand to protect his ring finger, which he injured against Auburn. We’ve got a couple of photos for you, although they’re from my phone, and the line practices pretty far from where we stand.
The receivers looked fine, and if Alabama wants to play Chris Black, he looks ready to go. Of course, it’s always different when a player gets hit for the first time in a game. He has some sort of brace underneath his pads for his shoulder, which he injured in the preseason.
