Alabama was back outside on Monday after practicing indoors last week, presumably to practice on turf before playing at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. With the No. 2 Crimson Tide playing on the grass at Bryant-Denny Stadium this week against New Mexico State, the team practiced on its grass surface outside.
– Defensive lineman Justin Eboigbe was not seen in defensive line drills. The freshman did not play against Duke while recovering from a foot injury.
– Athletic director Greg Byrne was in attendance today.
– As expected, freshman offensive lineman Emil Ekiyor Jr. was not seen in the offensive line drills. He suffered a minor knee injury that UA coach Nick Saban expects to keep him out for, “a week or two.”
