Practice report: Aug. 16 

August, 16, 2012
TUSCALOOSA Ala. -- The University of Alabama began practice on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields outdoors on Thursday afternoon, but quickly shuffled indoors when a strong thunderstorm moved into Tuscaloosa.

It was the 13th day of fall practice and the 18th practice overall.

Here are some notes and observations from the media viewing period:

  • Jalston Fowler began the practice at H-Back, but switched to running back after the first period. It's interesting to note that we have not seen Fowler work in passing drills with the H-Backs. He might be in a role more closely associated with fullbacks rather than tight ends.
  • Adrian Hubbard continues to practice with a brace on his left elbow. It has varied from a heavy wrap to a sleeve, but today it was a metallic/plastic brace.
