Practice report: Aug. 5 

August, 5, 2012
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama got a little different look on Sunday as the team took to Bryant-Denny Stadium in shells for an open workout.

Media Day, or Fan Day depending on how you look at it, wrapped up the weekend of practice.

Here are a few observations from the media viewing period:

Travis L. Brown/ Tide freshman Alec Morris has had some zip on the ball during Alabama's early fall camp workouts.

  • Most notably, athlete Cyrus Jones found himself at a new position, practicing at running back. The first two days he spent at wide receiver. He's an intriguing fit at either position. He's a little slender to play running back but has the speed and quickness to make defenders miss.
