TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban is preparing
his team for the second scrimmage of spring practice.
Saban put the Crimson Tide through mostly situational and team
drills in Wednesday's practice. He said they will see even more
variety in situations in Friday's scrimmage at Bryant-Denny
That's the point where he hopes younger players will take the
next step in their development. He said the more young players have
to make adjustments and think on their feet, the more errors they
make. That's the point where he expects the older players and team
leaders to help push them through the situation.
Saban said offensive tackle Mike Johnson and tailback Mark
Ingram are expected to miss the scrimmage because of injuries. The
Tide is already without Roy Upchurch in the backfield.
