Alabama held its second spring practice Monday, coming right after the Crimson Tide took a week off for UA’s spring break. You can catch up on the first spring practice notes from March 8 here.

The players were in shorts with no pads outside. Here’s what was observed.

  • Ale Kaho was once again not seen with the rest of Alabama’s inside linebackers, or anywhere really. He wasn’t at the opening practice either, and Alabama coach Nick Saban did say after that first absence Kaho is dealing with “some issues.” So, Dylan Moses still led that position group through drills, followed by Joshua McMillon, Markail Benton, Jaylen Moody and Shane Lee.
  • As for the outside linebackers, Anfernee Jennings continued to lead that group. Terrell Lewis and Christopher Allen were behind Jennings in order, both wearing knee braces. Eyabi Anoma and Jarez Parks then followed.
  • Cameron Latu continued to work with the tight ends rather than linebackers. He started that during the first practice because, as Saban put it, Alabama has “some experience issues at tight end and also some depth issues.” Latu was fourth in the position group to go through drills, behind Miller Forristall, Major Tennison and Giles Amos. Former Alabama tight end Irv Smith Jr. was watching practice. He’ll go through Alabama’s Pro Day on Tuesday as he prepares for the 2019 NFL Draft.
  • Safety Shyheim Carter was still wearing a black, non-contact jersey.
  • Saban was spotted with the cornerbacks, who were doubled up: Trevon Diggs and Patrick Surtain II, Jalyn Armour-Davis and Nigel Knott and then Scooby Carter and Josh Jobe were the first three parings.
  • Checked out the defensive line this time, as players worked in small groups. LaBryan Ray, Raekwon Davis and Phidarian Mathis were made up the first batch, while Justin Eboigbe, Christian Barmore, Tevita Musika and Stephon Wynn Jr. were the second set.

  • The quarterbacks threw in the order of Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones, Taulia Tagovailoa, Paul Tyson, Layne Hatcher, Kyle Edwards and Braxton Baker. They chucked up passes to wide receivers and tight ends. DeVonta Smith and Henry Ruggs III led the receivers.
  • Najee Harris was the first running back to go through drills on the far side of the practice field.
  • The offensive line did not line up in a five-man formation.

Alabama returns to practice Wednesday.
