Alabama redshirt sophomore DL Quinnen Williams recorded four pressures in Saturday's game against Tennessee.

Williams (6'4/295) only played 21 pass-rush snaps, making four pressures a really good rate. He also missed zero tackles on the day. Williams hasn't been a consistent compiler in the stat sheet but has made a big impact on the defense. Scouts are taking notice and he is widely considered a first-round talent. Even in a loaded class of defensive lineman, Williams will be in the conversation as one of the best.

Following Saturday's win at Tennessee, Alabama HC Nick Saban said that sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa (knee) could have returned to the game if needed.

Tagovailoa left Saturday's game in the second half due to the knee issue, but as was the case in the Crimson Tide's October 13 win over Missouri the game was well in hand by that point. Tagovailoa will now have some extra time to rest, as Alabama's next game isn't until November 3 at LSU. And if there are any lingering issues for the sophomore Heisman Trophy candidate, Alabama can always turn to junior Jalen Hurts.

Alabama junior DL Raekwon Harris was benched for the entire first half of Saturday's win at Tennessee for disciplinary reasons.

Harris, who warmed up with the second-team defense ahead of Saturday's game, was disciplined due to his throwing a punch during the fourth quarter of Alabama's October 13 win over Missouri. Like teammate Damien Harris, who didn't start due to "internal reasons," Davis will have some time to work his way back into the starting lineup ahead of Alabama's November 3 showdown with LSU.

Following Saturday's win over Tennessee, Alabama HC Nick Saban said that senior RB Damien Harris did not start the game due to "internal reasons."

Not starting put a serious dent in Harris' opportunities in the run game, as he accounted for just 12 yards and a touchdown on three carries. Josh Jacobs (68 yards, two TDs), Brian Robinson Jr. (60 yards) and Najee Harris (50 yards) were the beneficiaries of Harris' misstep, as they finished the game with 12, 13 and nine carries, respectively. Alabama does not return to action until November 3 at LSU, giving the senior running back some time to work his way back into Nick Saban's good graces.
Oct 20 - 8:05 PM

Alabama junior RB Joshua Jacobs rushed for 68 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries in Saturday's 58-21 win over Tennessee.

Jacobs (5'10/216) is an explosive player, but he did his damage from up close today. Christian Miller's fumble recovery at the Tennessee 3 in the first quarter set up a three-yard touchdown run by Jacobs. Jacobs also had a two-yard score in the second quarter.

Alabama sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 19-of-29 passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 58-21 win over Tennessee.

What do you say at this point? Tua has now led Alabama to opening-drive touchdowns in all eight games this year. He was doing Tua things all afternoon. Effortlessly avoiding pressure, dropping dimes to all levels of the field and in general looking like the special player he is. Per ESPN, Tagovailoa now has three games this season with 300 passing yards and four passing passes, the most in a season in Alabama history. The Tide only had nine such games in the entire history of the program coming into this year. There are currently no lefty quarterbacks on an NFL roster. That's going to change soon, and this one is going to be around for awhile. We don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but it's hard to argue with the Steve Young comps.

Alabama sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa (knee) started Saturday's game at Tennessee.

Tagovailoa aggravated a knee issue he'd been dealing with during the second half of Alabama's October 13 win over Missouri, but HC Nick Saban did say after that game that the sophomore could have returned if needed. The Heisman contender went through practice in the days leading up to Saturday's game in Knoxville without any complications, so his leading the Alabama offense comes as no surprise.
Oct 20 - 3:45 PM

Alabama junior DL Raekwon Davis worked with the second unit during warmups ahead of Saturday's game at Tennessee.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said earlier in the week that Davis would lose some playing time after being caught throwing punches at a Missouri player during the second half of the Crimson Tide's October 13 win. How much playing time the junior loses remains to be seen, but at the very least Davis appears to have lost his spot in the starting lineup.
Oct 20 - 3:16 PM

Alabama sophomore WR Devonta Smith (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Tennessee.

Smith (6'1/173) injured his leg in the second quarter of last weekend's win over Missouri. There's no immediate timetable for his return to action. Alabama should be just fine without the sophomore on Saturday. It would take a few notable injuries to slow the offensive machine in Tuscaloosa.
Oct 20 - 3:15 PM

Alabama four-star 2019 verbal OT commit Amari Kight is not wavering off his pledge.

That's not to say that the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Kight's recruitment has quieted since he pledged to Alabama in late April. Auburn and LSU continue to circle for the four-star lineman. Still, at this juncture, he seems to be very much of the "Alabama or bust" mindset. On the 247Sports composite board, Kight lands as the No. 46 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Alabama HC Nick Saban told reporters on Wednesday that sophomore WR Devonta Smith (leg) is questionable for Saturday against Tennessee.

Smith (6'1/173) was not able to practice on Wednesday after being limited in Tuesday's window that was open for media. He checked out of Saturday's game against Missouri with the leg injury in the second quarter and did not return. It sounds like Smith is going to be a game-time decision for the contest against the Volunteers, and considering the opponent, it wouldn't be a shock if he sat.
Oct 17 - 7:10 PM

Alabama offensive analyst Butch Jones will travel with the Crimson Tide for Saturday's game against Tennessee.

An offensive analyst traveling with the team isn't usually news, but it is when that analyst is Jones, and the team he's facing is the club he used to be the head coach for. Jones cannot coach on the field, but he helps offensive coordinator Mike Locksley with the offensive gameplans. Jones was fired from Tennessee after going 4-6 with the Volunteers in 2017.

Pro Football Focus lists Alabama sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa (knee) as the Heisman favorite through Week 7.

Kyler Murray moves up to the second spot, with Dwayne Haskins and Justin Herbert rounding out the top five. It's no surprise that Tagovailoa is considered the favorite, as he's been flat out dominant in his first season as the starter. The best player on the best team often wins this award, and that's what Tagovailoa. It's his award to lose.
Oct 17 - 6:47 PM

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that junior DL Raekwon Davis will lose playing time after throwing punches at Missouri OL Kevin Pendleton on Saturday.

Davis (6'7/316) unleashed a trio of body blows to Pendleton while the latter was on the ground during Saturday's win. Saban said that he's spoken with SEC commissioner Greg Sankey and that discipline will be handled internally. Just how much Davis' playing time will be curtailed, or for how long, is not quite clear. Alabama plays Tennessee on Saturday.
Oct 16 - 8:40 PM

Alabama sophomore WR Devonta Smith (leg) did not run during Tuesday's practice.

Smith (6'1/173) was present, but was very much limited during the open media window on Tuesday, catching passes while stationary and keeping his movements to a minimum. The sophomore wideout pulled a muscle in his leg in Saturday's win over Missouri, with Tide HC Nick Saban saying after the contest that he would be "day-to-day" this week. We'll have a better idea if Smith can play against Tennessee this coming weekend once we're on the back-end of the practice week.
