Photo report: Second two-a-day session

The practice schedule was changed up somewhat Tuesday for Bama's second two-a-day workout of fall camp. After working out in the morning, the squad didn't return to the practice fields until evening, providing cooler temperatures for the late session.

Secondary Coach Chris Ball speaks with Ramzee Robinson during squad warm-ups. Robinson continues to impress the entire Tide staff. He's slated as Bama's first back-up at corner, and he'll also handle the nickel back role. Plus, Robinson appears to be the front-runner for one of two kickoff return slots.

Defensive end Antwan Odom was back at practice yesterday (this photo was taken last Thursday). Odom reported that he sprained his neck Saturday, but the doctors say he'll be fine. Right now lingering back spasms are keeping him on the sideline.

After duck-walking low under a platform, defensive linemen do a forward flip and roll. The idea is to maintain body control, getting up and pursuing the play as quickly as possible.

Hurtling the football forward, the JUGGS machine isn't for the feint of heart. Zach Fletcher takes his turn, calmly snagging the pass.

Reports were that Roman Harper had a good off season, and the reports were correct. Sporting new layers of muscle, Harper poses for the camera. The sophomore is expected to start at strong safety for the Tide.

No one was happier about Le'Ron McClain and the results of his exit exam than Sparky Woods. As Bama's running backs coach, Woods knows how valuable McClain will be at fullback.

The second session of Tuesday's two-a-days didn't start until 7:45 pm, giving the squad a chance to work out in cooler evening temperatures. It wasn't quite as dark as this photo appears, but another row of lights on the Drew-Thomas Practice Fields wouldn't hurt.
