TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Day 2 of Alabama spring practice should be title Tua Watch as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and his injured left hand were the biggest things to watch.
The Crimson Tide worked outside in shorts for its second of 15 practices this spring.
Here’s the latest from Tuscaloosa.
What we saw
- Two days after suffering a hand injury, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (hand) was on the practice field. Tagovailoa participated in some footwork drills, but was not able to throw with his left hand. He was sporting a heavy wrap and a glove on the hand. He spent time working with head athletic trainer Jeff Allen as well.
- Jalen Hurts led the quarterbacks through drills with Mac Jones behind him. Walk-on Chris Howard was also a part of the quarterbacks group for the second straight practice. He played wide receiver last season.
- The first offensive line group had Jonah Williams at left tackle, Josh Casher at left guard, Ross Pierschbacher at center, Lester Cotton at right guard and Jedrick Wills at right tackle.
- At one point, Brandon Kennedy came on at center with the first group, which moved Pierschbacher back to left guard.
- The second offensive line group has Alex Leatherwood at left tackle, Dallas Warmack at left guard, Kennedy at center, Richie Petitbon at right guard and Scott Lashley at right tackle.
- Wide receiver DeVonta Smith spent individual drills with the cornerbacks for the second straight practice. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Tuesday that this is an experiment, and added that Smith worked with the wide receivers after individual drills.
- Outside linebacker Terrell Lewis wore a protective splint on his right hamstring.
- Former Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley was spotted at practice.
