The NFL preseason is underway and a few Alabama rookies got their feet wet Thursday night.
Rolando McClain had two tackles including one solo for the Oakland Raiders 17-9 win over the Cowboys.
Even more impressive was Terrence Cody. He had five tackles — four solo — and one for loss in the Ravens’ 17-12 win over the Panthers. He even lined up in the backfield as a fullback blocking for another former McClain from Alabama — running back Le’Ron McClain.

In Foxboro, Brandon Deaderick got a little playing time in the Patriots’ 27-24 loss to the Saints. Deaderick had one tackle in the fourth quarter.
