The University of Alabama returned to the football field on a warm Thursday afternoon in Tuscaloosa as the 2017 season got underway. 

The media was able to watch about 15 minutes of practice before exiting, and Tide 102.9 watched the quarterbacks, linebackers, and defensive line. Videos will be going up on YouTube throughout the afternoon, but here's a photo gallery to give you a look inside the first practice of the season.

You can get immediate reaction to what we saw by listening to The Game this afternoon.
