On Sunday, fans will have a chance to come out and watch the Crimson Tide’s open practice from 2:30 until approximately 4:30 p.m., but the Crimson Tide had work to do Saturday afternoon before the players could even think about Sunday’s practice and the following autograph session for fans taking place at 4:45 p.m.

Later when the players moved to work with blocking sleds Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne and Dalvin Tomlinson worked in the first line. Da’Shawn Hand, Joshua Frazier and Johnny Dwight worked in a second line followed by Daniel Powell, Jake Long and Raekwon Davis.

David Cornwell and Jalen Hurts worked with a second line of tight ends at this time.Bo Scarbrough and Damien Harris respectively led the running backs in footwork drills designed to help the backs cause defenders to miss.The safeties appeared to be working on interception drills in the distance.
