VIDEO: Pre-scrimmage drills on tape!

We didn’t get long to watch the pre-scrimmage routine this afternoon, just enough time to capture these low-quality home videos for you.

So, without delay, let’s start with the receivers.

Mark Ingram returns to practice Monday

About 24 hours after missing “Fan Day,” Mark Ingram was back in Tuscaloosa and on the practice field for the 2:30 p.m. workout. In case you’re wondering, the current temperature is 96 degrees with a heat index of 105.

Ingram will meet with reporters after practice. If he says something interesting, it will land on here soon thereafter.

To prove the Heisman Trophy winner was back in his helmet and shoulder pads, here are a few videos. 

First, they run under the thing that none of us reporters could identify with an actual name.

Then they hit the sled.

There are a few thousand fans inside Bryant-Denny Stadium sweating out another “Fan Day.” The team is practicing right now as another gaggle of fans wait outside for the autograph signing.

I heard the person on line arrived here at 6 a.m. I sure hope it was worth the wait. Players and coaches will sign for 45 minutes after practice.

Video to come later. They don’t seem to want to upload right now.

And now, the final photo has been added to the Bryant-Denny Stadium expansion album. Enjoy.
