Alabama Crimson Tide Tuesday (10/22) Practice Report


Alabama returned to the practice field on a sunny afternoon today in full pads.

Defensive lineman LaMichael Fanning was not spotted with the defensive line today and it’s unclear where he was during practice. Fanning did not dress for the Arkansas game either.

Cornerback Bradley Sylve continues to wear a black, non-contact jersey and worked to the side with a trainer during the media’s viewing period. Sylve’s ankle was heavily wrapped and he was noticeably limping.

Freshman running Altee Tenpenny, who has been suffering from turf toe, was working on an exercise bike today like he was yesterday.

Fellow freshmen running backs Derrick Henry, Alvin Kamara, and Tyren Jones are working with the scout team. Henry is wearing #20 which belongs to Tennessee’s leading rusher Raijon Neal (693 yards, 8 TD). Kamara and Jones are wearing #15 which belongs to Tennessee running back Marlin Lane (335 yards, 4 TD).

Center Chad Linsday remained with the first team offensive line today while Ryan Kelly was working with the second team. Linsday has started the last three games since Ryan Kelly injured his knee against Ole Miss.

Some reports yesterday indicated that starting cornerback Deion Belue was not at practice Monday, but he was definitely spotted working in group drills on Tuesday.

Alabama returns to practice tomorrow and Coach Saban will speak to the media twice that day.
