Yesterday we broke the sad news that the star of Tide Tide End Cameron Side will miss some time during the fall camp due to an unknown injury. Now the likes of Robbie Ouzts, Amari Niblack, Elijah Brown, Danny Lewis and Miles Kitselman will have to make up for Latu’s absence.

As Coach Saban mentioned in his Thursday press conference, the young guys from the tight end now have a great opportunity to perhaps play a part in this team.

Let’s take a look at a few other notes from Thursday’s workout.

“The quarterbacks worked really hard. Bryce did a very, very good job in terms of leadership as well as understanding the offense. Confidence in what he does, in making the right decisions. I think he sets a really good example for the other guys.

“I think Jalen Milro has made a lot of progress. We still want to continue working with him. And the development of Tai [Simpson], as a young player who is in development, but we are pleased with his progress. I think everyone has a really good attitude if you ask about the mindset and I think everyone is really working hard to try and get to where they would like to be and where we would like them to be.”

Coach Saban says offensive line should play better

“First of all, we need to be more physically active and move more on the run… In general, we need to have a different mentality in terms of the immutable things we play with.”
