TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama moved indoors Wednesday as it held its sixth practice in preparation for its Orange Bowl matchup against Oklahoma on Dec. 29. Players were dressed in full pads for the workout. Here are some notes from the media viewing period.
— Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) continued to move well during footwork drills. Earlier in the day, he said he was “doing great” and said he expected to be ready to play in the Orange Bowl.
“I’ll probably be at 100 percent by the time the game comes,” Tagovailoa said. That’s my prediction. Definitely.”
— Tagovailoa no longer appears to have tape on his left ankle but did have both of his cleats spatted for the workout.
— Terrell Lewis (ACL) appeared limited when the rest of the outside linebackers worked on coverage drills. He spent most of the viewing period on one knee, watching the rest of the unit.
— Outside linebacker Chris Allen (ACL) was seen walking out of practice before the viewing period. He was fully dressed and had a brace on his left knee.
— Deonte Brown (turf toe) was taking snaps a left guard with the first-team offense when it moved into team drills. Lester Cotton worked on the first team when the offensive line was working in positional drills.
