Alabama was back on the field this afternoon for its 10th practice of spring, meaning the Crimson Tide is now through 2/3 of its 15 spring practices. This was a full pads practice outside on a beautiful day in Tuscaloosa.

Here are some notes and observations from the open period:

  • Wide receiver Henry Ruggs III was back at practice with the wide receivers. He was out on Saturday and Monday while attending a family funeral in Montgomery.
  • Linebacker Ben Davis was walking through the building as we headed out to practice and was in a black jersey. Can’t imagine he did much today.
  • Linebacker Terrell Lewis and defensive backĀ Shyheim Carter were also in black, but were out with their position groups at practice.
  • Offensive lineman Matt Womack was dressed and with the offensive lineman but didn’t appear to be doing much during the open period as we watched individual drills.
  • Also something kind of unique about spring: We have seen a group of five offensive linemen together during the open period, but it’s not every practice. New offensive line coach Kyle Flood has changed up some of what they do.
  • Probably haven’t made this quite clear: Markail Benton and Jaylen Moody have been paired together as the second string inside linebackers. Ale Kaho has been with Shane Lee with the threes.
  • Paul Bryant Jr. was checking out practice once again today. Will probably stop mentioning that as he’s become such a frequent visitor.

We’ll speak to Nick Saban at about 6:00 central time. Stay tuned.
