Friday practice report

TUSCALOOSA | The University of Alabama continued fall camp Friday with an afternoon practice in preparation for Saturday's second fall scrimmage. Here were some observations from Tidesports.com during the media viewing period:

*** Junior cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was at practice but did not participate in individual drills. The preseason All-SEC pick has a leg contusion.

*** Nose guard Brandon Ivory and offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio are both nursing minor knee issues. Ivory was in a black (non-contact) jersey Friday, while Kouandjio was not at practice during the media viewing period.

*** JuCo transfer wide receiver Duron Carter was not at practice Friday. Carter is awaiting academic clearance.

*** Versatile redshirt freshman Blake Sims worked with running backs once again on Friday. Phillip Ely is getting third-team reps at quarterback while Sims is working with the backs, but Sims could figure into UA's quarterback plans in some sort of change-of-pace role.

*** The team was in half-pads and worked indoors Friday, perhaps with an eye toward fresh legs for Saturday's scrimmage.
