Thursday post-practice update

-- RB Brad Lester went full speed at practice and will play Saturday. The senior is still in a green jersey, meaning he’s not taking any contact, but he has full range of motion in his neck, which was coach Tommy Tuberville’s biggest concern. Lester even returned kicks during practice.

-- Heavy special teams day in practice. Tuberville wants to make sure his team is prepared for LSU returner Trindon Holliday. “In my lifetime of watching guys return, he’s about as elusive (as they come),’ Tuberville said.

-- Tuberville backed off some of the running drills this week, wanting to get his teams’ legs back.

-- He also said he’d like the defense to only be on the field in the range of 50 to 55 plays. The D was on the field 68 times against Louisiana-Monroe and 77 times against Southern Miss. That number dropped to 55 against Mississippi State.
