Coach Nick Saban and company continued with fall practice on Friday, working outside in steamy, 94-degree weather conditions. Players donned jerseys, shorts and helmets at Thomas-Drew Field.

Notes from Friday’s session 

-Bo Scarbrough was back in action, after sitting out Thursday (right leg cramp). He took all running backs through drills, and was followed by Damien Harris, Derrick Gore, B.J. Emmons and Joshua Jacobs.

-Experiments are still taking place along the offensive line. Freshman Jonah Williams lined up with the first group at right tackle, joining Bradly Bozeman (RG), Ross Pierschbacher (center), Lester Cotton (LG) and Cameron Robinson (LT).

-The second group of offensive line appeared to be (left to right): Matt Womack, Dallas Warmack, J.C. Hassenaur, Alphonse Taylor (suspension) and Korren Kirven.

-Josh Casher anchored the third group at center and was flanked (left to right) by: Chris Owens (LT), Brandon Kennedy (LG), Deonte Brown (RG) and Scott Lashley (RT).

-Nothing different happened with quarterbacks, aside from a fe a few nice throws from Blake Barnett and Jalen Hurts. All guys worked on patterns with tight ends, prior to wide receivers.

-Outside linebackers coach Tosh Lupoi had his group working on turnover drill. Ryan Anderson and Tim Williams led the unit, followed by Christian Miller, Jamey Mosley, Anfernee Jennings, Mekhi Brown and Terrell Hall.

-Coach Saban had all cornerbacks working on attacking the ball. Marlon Humphrey and  Minkah Fitzpatrick led drills, while freshmen Shyheim Carter and Jared Mayden stood behind them.
