Saturday practice report

TUSCALOOSA | The University of Alabama went through the fifth of 15 spring practices in full pads Saturday at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility. Here are a few observations from Tidesports.com from the media viewing period.

*** RBs Eddie Lacy and Blake Sims were unavailable again while recovering from injuries. Same with backup offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio, who is recovering from a knee procedure.

**** Suspended receivers Michael Bowman, Duron Carter and Ronald Carswell were absent from practice once again.

*** Barrett Jones and Cyrus Kouandjio remained at their spring-long spots at center and left tackle, respectively.

*** The coaching clinic continued Saturday with hundreds of prep coaches on hand for practice, though the crowd was thinner than it was Friday. Lou Holtz highlights Saturday's scheduled clinic speakers.

*** Sophomore-to-be WR Christion Jones made an outstanding catch on a ball thrown above his head during individual drills. Jones is competing in a large group of young and inexperienced receivers for plenty of available playing time at that spot.
