Practice report: Aug. 11

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama headed to Bryant-Denny Stadium for the second time during preseason camp on Saturday. The Crimson Tide wore full pads under partly cloudy skies for the first official scrimmage since April.

As reported earlier in the week, true freshman receiver Chris Black is out for 3-4 months with a shoulder injury that will require surgery. He was not at practice.

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

  • With Black out, it looks like Cyrus Jones is making a move. The No. 4 athlete in the ESPN 150 last season has seemed more comfortable at receiver with each passing day. He's flashed good hands and is a natural at catching the ball and getting up field in a hurry.
