TUSCALOOSA -- Alabama held its final full practice of game week on Wednesday. The Crimson Tide worked inside in shells (shoulder pads, helmets and shorts). The Tide will have a walk through Thursday.

Here are some takeaways:

--Sticking with the theme of altering days as the starter, Jacob Coker led the quarterbacks through drills. Blake Sims led individual drills on Wednesday.

--After being limited during Tuesday's media viewing period, senior wide receiver DeAndrew White participated in individual drills. White moved fine so there's likely not much to worry about.

--The first offensive line remained the same. From left tackle to right tackle: Cam Robinson, Arie Kouandjio, Ryan Kelly, Alphonse Taylor and Austin Shepherd.

--The second offensive line saw Dominick Jackson at right tackle, Leon Brown at right guard, Bradley Bozeman at center, Ross Pierschbacher at left guard and Grant Hill at left tackle.

--The offensive line also worked in a sixth linemen during the viewing period. Brown was the extra lineman with the first group while Isaac Luatua came in with the second group. There's a chance the extra players could have been filling in for the tight ends who were running routes with the receivers and quarterbacks. Or, Alabama could have been working on a jumbo package. You decide.

--Toward the end of the viewing window, Reuben Foster worked next to Reggie Ragland during inside linebacker drills. Foster is listed as a co-starter at both the MIKE and WILL inside linebacker positions and with Trey DePriest still nursing a knee injury, Foster could play a big role on Saturday.

--Dillon Lee also worked with the inside linebackers.

Up next: Saban and select players will speak to reporters following practice.
