TUSCALOOSA — The Alabama football team was back inside Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday for the Crimson Tide’s first full scrimmage of fall camp.

The media was able to view the team’s walk-through drills prior to Saturday’s scrimmage. Below are a few notes Bama Digest was able to identify during the viewing period.

— Judging by our observations on Saturday, the Crimson Tide first-team offense appears to be consistent with Jalen Hurts at quarterback and Bo Scarbrough in the backfield, while Robert Foster, Calvin Ridley and Cam Sims lined up at wide receivers.

— The tight ends on first-team were a mixture of Hale Hentges and Miller Forristall, while Irv Smith and Major Tennison were the second-team.

— The offensive line first and second team units remained the same as it has throughout observations of fall camp. Jonah Williams, Ross Pierschbacher, Bradley Bozeman, Lester Cotton and Matt Womack made up the first team from left to right. The second team consisted of Scott Lashley, Dallas Warmack, J.C. Hassenaur, Deonte Brown and Alex Leatherwood. Jerdick Wills and Leatherwood were rotated at right tackle with the second team.

Tua Tagovailoa and Damien Harris were the quarterback–running back combination with the second-team. Derek Kief and Jerry Jeudy were with the second-team receivers, while Brian Robinson was the running back with the third-team.

— The running back unit had Damien Harris, Scarbrough, Zavier Mapp, Ronnie Clark and Robinson run through drills. Josh Jacobs and Najee Harris appeared to be limited in the walk through prior to the scrimmage.

— Linebackers Jamey Mosley and VanDarius Cowan were back on the field in crimson jerseys. Mosley spent the end of last week’s practices under concussion protocol, while Cowan had a back injury sustained in high school re-flare. Both had been limited with no-contact jerseys on last week. Cowan was observed participating in drills, while Mosley was watching from afar.

Next up — Alabama head coach Nick Saban will hold a press conference following today’s scrimmage at 3 p.m. CT.
