Alabama football could be dealing with yet another injury, as reports emerged on Tuesday that former five-star and current Crimson Tide freshman linebacker Dylan Moses had sustained an injury in practice that would sideline him for the rest of the season.
AL.com’s Mark Zenitz is reporting that the injury may be a broken foot.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban released the following statement on Tuesday:
“Dylan Moses injured his foot in practice on Monday. He will be out indefinitely.”
The injury is yet another ailment that the Crimson Tide will have to work through, as the Alabama defense has been battling injuries on defense all season. The linebacker corps has been hit the hardest, with Shaun Dion Hamilton, Terrell Lewis, Christian Miller, and Mack Wilson all missing time this year ude to injury.
Moses had consistently filled in when needed this season, appearing in 11 games and starting two as a true freshman. Moses has 30 tackles (5.5 TFL), 1.5 sacks, and one interception on the season.
Moses is a former five-star recruit of the 2017 recruiting class. He was ranked the No. 13 overall player of his class by the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Alabama is set to play No. 1 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1. The game is the second of the College Football Playoff semifinals, with No. 2 Georgia and No. 3 Oklahoma kicking off in the Rose Bowl earlier on New Year’s Day.
