Spring practice: Week 5 (Thursday)

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama hit the practice field for the final time this spring on Thursday.

It felt an awful lot like the fall with the Crimson Tide wearing shorts and no pads with A-Day on Saturday.

With that said, here are a few notes and observations from the media viewing period of Thursday's practice.

  • It doesn't look like there's a shot of Blake Sims seeing the field on Saturday. For the fourth week in a row the sophomore running back has worn a black no-contact jersey as he recovers from a hip injury sustained over spring break.
