Alabama returned to Bryant-Denny stadium for its second fall preseason scrimmage Saturday afternoon. 


  • Jake Coker led the quarterback line for the first part of the viewing period, but Alec Morris stepped into the first spot in the latter half. Morris has been gaining momentum for the starting position in Alabama’s quarterback battle.  
  • Reggie Ragland and Dillon Lee were the first in line for inside linebacker drills
  • OJ Howard led the tight ends in the first part of the viewing period, but switched with Ty Flournoy-Smith for route drills with the quarterbacks.
  • Cyrus Jones and Tony Brown, now wearing no. 7, were the first group of cornerbacks. Brown’s number change is current, likely so he can play on special teams with Derrick Henry if needed.
