Practice report: Alabama turns attention to Ole Miss

Freshman defensive end Stephon Wynn Jr. returns to practice

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. As expected, the University of Alabama football team got an injured player back on Monday afternoon.

Freshman defensive lineman Stephon Wynn Jr. (ligament strain) returned to practice as the Crimson Tide began to turn its attention to Ole Miss. No. 1 Alabama will visit the Rebels on Saturday (6 p.m. CT, ESPN).

Wynn, who has been out for more than a month, was in a black no-contact jersey.

Although senior Isaiah Buggs missed part of the Arkansas State game with an ankle injury, he was at practice. However, reporters were able to watch only one period of individual drills and no team work (which is usual for a Monday).

Sophomore guard Alex Leatherwood was in his usual spot with the offensive lineman, as was freshman outside linebacker Jarez Parks after missing three days last week following a death in the family

With freshman cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis out for the season the cornerbacks were, in order, Trevon Diggs, Saivion Smith, Patrick Surtain II, Nigel Knott, Josh Jobe and Eddie Smith.

Junior offensive lineman Matt Womack (foot) remains out. Junior linebacker Terrell Lewis (knee) was working out in the weight room during practice along with Armour-Davis and linebacker Chris Allen (knee).

Reporters saw the interior linebackers work on a drill designed to help with cut blocks.

Conditions were cloudy and 79 degrees. The team worked in shorts.
