After taking Monday off, the Alabama football team was back in front of media Wednesday for one last time before it takes on Kent State on Saturday.
All drills looked normal, except ArDarius Stewart was absent from the wide receivers’ drills. Stewart was seen on the sideline wearing a black uniform and a left knee brace. He spent time throwing a medicine ball and a football back and forth between two coaches. Afterward, he moved to work out on the stationary bike.
Additional practice notes:
Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers scouts were present watching the players during drills.Quarterbacks, including Jalen Hurts and Blake Barnett, worked on fade routes and end zone slant routes with the receiving core.The defensive line worked on footwork drills and the two-man sled.
