When we last saw the group, LaBryan Ray (leg) was out after suffering a season-ending injury and DJ Dale was still dealing with nagging issues that had bothered him since winning the nose tackle job as a true freshman in spring.

There were times the Crimson Tide was playing two true freshmen up front, but in the process was building a lot of depth that will now pay off.

Ray is back and ready to go. As a senior he’s expected to be the veteran leader, while Dale should only benefit from being in the program.
