Alabama football postpones spring practice amid coronavirus concern

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Roughly an hour before it was scheduled to return to the field to kick off its annual spring practice schedule, Alabama’s football team announced it would join the rest of the sports world and postpone all activities in light of the ongoing conoravirus pandemic.

“Alabama has suspended spring football practices until further notice, including all football media-related activities,” the program announced over social media. “We will provide updates when more information is available.”

Even amid the turmoil and uncertainty surrounding the global health scare associated with the outbreak of COVID-19, it was business as usual inside the Mal Moore Athletic Complex as the Crimson Tide appeared on target to begin its usual 15-day practice slate with head coach Nick Saban also scheduled to hold a news conference.

But neither of those will happen, at least not for the foreseeable future.
