TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama hit the practice fields for the next to last preseason practice before game week begins on Monday.

The Crimson Tide practiced under fair conditions: 90 degrees and clear skies.

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

  • For the fourth consecutive day Amari Cooper wore a black no-contact jersey and stayed on the stationary bike during practice. Nick Saban said the true freshman will return to practice on Monday.
  • Eddie Lacy went full-go for the second straight day of practice. The junior running back sprained his knee and ankle during Saturday's scrimmage and spent a few days not participating in drills.
