– The good news continues for both outside linebackers, Anfernee Jennings and Terrell Lewis. Both participated yesterday and both did the same today, as well.
– There’s also good news on the D.J. Dale front. The freshman nose guard took position drills reps during the media viewing period for the first time this week. UA coach Nick Saban, who addresses the media after practice, said earlier in the week he expected Dale to practice, and now media has seen it.

– In the video above, you can see quarterback working on deep throws to the corners of the end zone. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian told his quarterbacks they need to hope opponents play man-to-man, so they can take throws like these. An educated guess says it’s also a demand for confidence in those throws, or at least setting the baseline of ideal confidence in those throws.
– The offensive line was working an unbalanced formation, which is not uncommon based on what Alabama has done in four games. The line moved Jedrick Wills from right tackle to an extra left tackle, with the typical alignment of Alex Leatherwood, Evan Neal, Chris Owens and Landon Dickerson to his right, with tight end Major Tennison taking the place usually occupied by a right tackle.
– Speaking of the offensive line, Deonte Brown continues to practice as the second-string right guard. There was a change on that unit, though: Matt Womack was the second-string left tackle today. Yesterday it was Tommy Brown.
