TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The University of Alabama football team completed its sixth spring practice Tuesday under light rain at Drew-Thomas Field in Tuscaloosa.
"I think practice actually was a little bit better today," Alabama head coach Mike Shula said. "There are some guys who are more comfortable with what they're doing, (like) Kyle Tatum and Mark Guillon.
"The important thing is that we keep making strides. Sometimes they aren't big, but little ones, but it's important that we keep making them."
Tuesday's practiced concluded with about 25 plays with live tackling. Shula said that practices would include increased tackling drills before the Tide's first controlled scrimmage on Saturday.
Shula also lauded Roman Harper for having a good start to spring.
Alabama practices again on Thursday and Friday, with the scrimmage scheduled for Saturday.
