Spring Practice Report: Day 2

Check out the latest news, notes and video from Alabama's second day of spring practice.

As thunderstorms moved into Tuscaloosa, Alabama began its second day of spring practice.

The players and coaches ignored the loud rumbles of thunder outside as they worked inside the Hank Crisp Practice Facility Monday afternoon.

The media was granted a solid 15 minutes to watch practice. Here are some observations:

--Black jersey report: Running back Jalston Fowler (knee), running back/cornerback Dee Hart (knee), linebacker C.J. Mosley (shoulder) and wide receiver DeAndrew White (knee) were all practicing in no-contact jerseys. None were limited while media was present, though.

Cornerback John Fulton and wide receiver Kevin Norwood also wore black jerseys, but couldn't practice. Both are recovering from toe surgery and were working with strength coach Scott Cochran. At first they were on recumbent bikes, then moved to the ground to work with a large medicine ball.

--Wide receivers Cyrus Jones and Christion Jones, both of whom, along with Hart, have been practicing with the defensive backs, continued to do so Monday.

--Safety Jarrick Williams, who had surgery to repair a torn ACL last August, wore a brace on his knee.

--Running back Derrick Henry is a monster. Saturday, Mosley went as far as saying that he looks like a "bigger version of Trent Richardson." Scary, right?

Henry, who stands at 6-foot-3, 243 lbs., is the last back in line during drills because spring is just starting and although he was a five-star recruit, he hasn't earned anything just yet. He is getting a jump on the other incoming freshmen backs Altee Tenpenny, Tyren Jones and Alvin Kamara by enrolling early.

Watch new coach Mario Cristobal coach up the offensive line, AJ McCarron work with his receivers, Derrick Henry run through his teammates, and more in the video below:
