  • ESPN’s All-Access remained ongoing as practice got started. The cameras focused on Saban, of course, and Tom Rinaldi watched on.
  • CB Bradley Sylve was a full participant. He still has a bit of a limp, but he looks to be in good position to play Saturday. Same with CB Deion Belue (toe).
  • DL Dakota Ball was back on the practice field for the first time in more than a month. Ball missed most of August after an appendectomy and had been recently sidelined with a broken foot. The redshirt freshman has yet to play a down for Alabama. Ball wore a non-contact jersey.
  • RB Jalston Fowler wore a normal jersey and appears to be good to go for Saturday.
  • Freshman RB Alvin Kamara was not spotted.
  • DE LaMichael Fanning’s suspension remains ongoing.
