TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The bye week appears to have been good to the University of Alabama football team, which got a chance get over some of the bumps and bruises sustained during the first month of the season.

Senior wide receiver DeAndrew White (shoulder) is the only player expected to be limited at Monday’s practice.

“We’ll be day-to-day with him,” Coach Nick Saban said. “Hopefully he’ll be able to practice some more toward the end of the week, and may be able to play some role in this game.”

Meanwhile, senior quarterback Blake Sims is expected to participate in all drills after being put on a “pitch count” during last week’s practices after sustaining a bruised shoulder against Florida on Sept. 20. Saban added that he “Feels a lot better now.”

“He’s good,” junior center Ryan Kelly said. “The first couple of days (last week) he didn’t do much, but Thursday and Friday he came out, they cut down reps a little bit, but he didn’t show any signs of hurt. He was normal to us.”

As for the Alabama secondary, which had numerous players in new spots against Florida, senior safety Jarrick Williams is trying to get back up to speed after having surgery to fix a foot fracture following the West Virginia game. Junior Geno Smith filled for him at star, the fifth defensive back in the nickel formation, which Alabama will likely use the most against Ole Miss on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS).

Saban is also looking for sophomore Eddie Jackson to compete with freshman Tony Brown to start against the Rebels.

Jackson had knee surgery in April, and sustained a quad injury against Southern Miss on Sept. 13. Saban said Brown played “pretty well” when started in his place against the Gators.

“He definitely stepped up as a freshman and is playing great,” junior safety Landon Collins said. “I didn’t have to tell him too much. He knew where to line up. He knew the play calls. He knew what he had to do. He had the game plan ready and was going to meetings with the package in hand making sure he knows everything that’s got to be going on because he doesn’t want to get fussed at — not by us but by Coach Saban. Definitely he knows what he has to do. I don’t have to get on him too much.”
