TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The University of Alabama football team returned to the practice field on Monday for a two-hour workout in full pads at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility.
It was the Crimson Tide's ninth practice of 15 scheduled for this spring, and their first since Friday's 120-play scrimmage inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy, who went 14-of-22 passing for 235 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's scrimmage, was pleased with the progression of the offense. But the native of Southlake, Texas, admitted there is still plenty to work on.
"I thought the scrimmage went really well," McElroy said. "I thought we did a good job competing. We really tried to emphasize a lot of effort and effort on every snap. Of course, we had some busts here and there, which is typical of a first scrimmage. But all in all, I think everyone felt strongly about the way they came out there and produced."
The Crimson Tide will take Tuesday off before returning to the practice field on Wednesday. Alabama is working toward the 2010 A-Day Game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, April 17, at 2 p.m. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
