TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Crimson Tide put on full pads for the third consecutive day on Thursday. Rain threatened the proceedings, but Alabama started practice outdoors on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields.

Here are a few notes and observations from the media viewing period of practice:

  • Vinnie Sunseri came into Wednesday's interview session with his knee wrapped in ice. On Thursday, he practiced without a sleeve or any aid. The sophomore safety moved freely in drills.
  • Chris Black did not appear at practice again. The true freshman receiver injured his shoulder during Sunday's practice.
