– Alabama linebacker Trey Depriest was held out of practice today, in a noncontact black jersey riding the exercise bike under the supervision of strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran. Depriest was sporting a protective boot on his right leg. He was alongside Kevin Norwood (toe) and John Fulton (toe), who had appeared to be making improvements before the scrimmage, getting off the bike and doing light running.
– At the defensive end spot, Ed Stinson was practicing alongside Dalvin Tomlinson in the No. 1 line. LaMichael Fanning and Dakota Ball were the No. 2 team and Korren Kirven was in the No. 3 team.
– The linebackers seemed to be practicing more tackling drills than normal, with more contact that the norm, as well.
– Former Alabama defensive end Quinton Dial was observing practice, much closer to the action than most of the other visitors. You can see him in the practice video below.
