The second day of Alabama-LSU week saw a perfect afternoon for practice in Tuscaloosa. Comfortable temperature, clear sky. Just a nice day.
Anyway, what we saw:
— Jalen Hurts was again out there throwing with the quarterbacks but was not doing any the drills requiring mobility. He’s still a little more than a week away from spraining his ankle at Tennessee and having surgery to help it.
— Tua Tagovailoa continued to look fine with the sprained knee that was an issue the last two games. He said Monday everything was fine and he was doing all the drills in the limited media viewing period. When he was hurt, he wasn’t doing the drill where he threw from his knees but is back doing it again.
— DeVonta Smith looked to be more mobile as he comes back from the hamstring injury. He was running short routes required of the drill we were able to see. He missed the Tennessee game and there haven’t been many updates to his status since. Nick Saban speaks Wednesday morning.
— Deonte Brown looked to be working with the second group at left guard but I’d expect to see him rotating with Lester Cotton as that competition continues.
— The New York Giants were among the NFL teams who had a scout at practice.
