The football team is back from Spring Break, and we spoke to Dabo, Travis Etienne and Xavier Thomas after practice on Monday. Dabo told me that Nick Saban made good on their annual dinner wager. They just missed each other in Florida by a few days, but he sent Dabo a gift certificate. It was probably the best grouper Dabo has tasted in 2 years!
Etienne said with a smile that he ate too much over the break and gained a few pounds, but I'm sure he'll be back where he needs to be soon. I asked him how far Lyn-J Dixon has come with his knowledge of the offense and pass protection, and Travis said it was a complete 180 for him.
UPDATE: Dabo told us last night that there weren't any major injuries, but we have learned that Amari Rodgers suffered a knee injury in practice yesterday and will likely miss the Orange and White Game in a couple weeks, maybe more. I'll have more on the extent of the injury to come.
