Freshman defensive back Craig Steltz and junior defensive lineman Kyle Williams wore red non-contact jerseys throughout the drills, while freshman tight end Mit Cole watched the first period from the sidelines without pads on.
Punter Patrick Fisher, plagued by inconsistency throughout the fall, had a solid afternoon of practice, combining distance and hang-time to unleash a series of booming punts that would make 2003 starter Donnie Jones proud.
Offensive line coach Stacy Searels, wearing round-framed glasses that made him look eerily like departed lineman Rodney Reed, put the offensive line through a series of rugged blocking drills, and perhaps showed his hand as to what the opening day lineup will look like.
Left guard Andrew Whitworth, left tackle Will Arnold, center Ben Wilkerson, right tackle Rudy Niswanger, and right guard Nate Livings ran with the ones, and the quintet was backed up in the twos by left guard Peter Dyakowski, left tackle Terrell McGill, center Doug Planchard, right tackle Brian Johnson, and right guard Brandon Washington.
The team will run through a closed scrimmage on Tuesday before taking Wednesday off – their first day off since reporting for fall camp on August
8. Head coach Nick Saban has indicated that Tuesday's scrimmage will be used to determine who gets the number two role on the quarterback depth chart behind senior Marcus Randall, ending a month-long (some may say twelve month-long) debate about who the backup signal-caller will be when the season opener gets underway in eleven days.
