Alabama Coach Nick Saban said a few weeks ago that Kenyan Drake had been suspended from team activity until the player could demonstrate to the coach that he was ready to walk the straight and narrow. And, Saban said, Drake had been doing that all summer until he foolishly attempted to cross a crime scene area to get to his car.Drake, a 6-1, 200-pound junior tailback, must have done something to get at least part of the way back to good graces, because he was working with the returning playerss in Alabama’s first practice of fall camp Friday morning. That group of mostly veterans also included linebacker Dillon Lee, who had been arrested last spring. Lee has not been listed as suspended by Saban. Defensive end Jarran Reed, who like Drake had also been listed as suspended, was not at the Friday morning practice, but that does not mean he will not be on the team. In fact, he could be at the Friday evening practice. Although that is primarily for newcomers, a handful of veterans join the Friday night group to make up a practice squad. Alabama will have Fan Day at Bryant-Denny Stadium at 2:30 p.m. Sunday with an open practice, followed by an autograph session. Bama opens the season Aug. 30 against West Virginia at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
