Temperatures were mild, but humidity was high as overcast skies left a gloomy setting for the Tigers only workout of the day. Rain drops were felt throughout the first few periods, but heavy rains finally set in as LSU began winding down drills.
"We did get to experience some wet weather conditions," Saban said. "We had two periods left, a 7-minutes period and an 8-minute period, and we didn't feel the need to make the guys change their shoes to go inside for two periods. So we stayed out."
The media was allowed just three periods so there was very little to report in the wake of Friday's workout.
From an injury standpoint, redshirt freshman defensive tackle Carnell Stewart practiced but donned a red jersey. It was reported Stewart had a bruised shoulder. However, true freshman safety Craig Steltz was present but did not dress Friday. He did stretch, but had his right shin heavily taped after he was reportedly kicked in the leg Thursday.
Just a few tidbits, Joseph Addai spent all three periods the media was present for running routes and catching passes with the wide receivers. Addai is such a physical player and could add some toughness to wide receiver position, but like they need it. He isn't quite Josh Reed in the slot, but he is more physical than Devery Henderson, both of whom were former running backs.
Will Arnold, who suffered a mild concussion early in the week, was back to full strength Friday and was running with the first team at left guard.
As far as the quarterbacks go, Marcus Randall exudes the leadership qualities the coaching staff is looking for. He makes good reads and continues to improve. Randall passes were crisp and solid, but expected second stringer JaMarcus Russell was smooth as silk throwing 40-yard fade routes on the money.
