Baton Rouge native Dylan Moses breaks foot at Alabama practice, needs surgery

Share

Alabama freshman linebacker Dylan Moses is hurt.

The Crimson Tide standout suffered what could be a potentially season-ending injury.

. Moses started two games this year for the Crimson Tide due to the other injuries to the team's linebacking corps. The SEC All-Freshman selection has 30 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks this season.

He had a career-high 10 tackles in a 56-0 win against Mercer on November 18.

Another inside linebacker, Mack Wilson, was hurt near the end of the regular season but returned in time to play against Auburn on November 25.

The Crimson Tide have been beset with injuries at linebacker this season and were already going to be without senior Shaun Dion Hamilton for the CFP.

"It's something you can't control, it's just something you've got to kind of just live with", inside linebacker Rashaan Evans said on Tuesday. Terrell Lewis (elbow), a top backup at outside linebacker, was also injured in that game.

Jennings and Evans missed two games each.

With his absence, Alabama will likely turn to either Keith Holcombe or Mack Wilson (or both) to start at linebacker for its College Football Playoff matchup vs. Clemson.

"There's a reason why we play the game of football", Evans said.

"We always have different things that we've got to overcome, and I feel like for our defense - and not only just for our defense, but our whole team - I feel like we're up for the task".
