All-American Alabama LB Dylan Moses has torn ACL

Alabama vs. Duke Series history

Matt Zenitz of AL.com reports that Moses tore his ACL during Tuesday night's practice.

Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses was named an AP Preseason All-American heading into 2019.

This post will be updated.

Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban stated Moses will require surgery and will be out for "an indefinite amount of time".

Alabama can't seem to get away from the injury bug during the offseason, as they have seemingly traded off Dylan Moses for a healthy Terrell Lewis. It will depend on the severity of the tear and how Moses's rehab goes.

Moses was being heralded as a first round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Alabama was already dealing with the loss of senior inside linebacker Joshua McMillon, who suffered what's believed to be a season-ending knee injury earlier this month. Coach Saban has praised Harris throughout camp, but two true freshman starting is an issue for the Crimson Tide. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound linebacker, described as a "freak athlete" by his official school bio, has been a starter for the Crimson Tide since late in his true-freshman season.

For now, the Crimson Tide remain focused on their opener against Duke on Saturday. This could lead to some roles and assignments shifting too as the Crimson Tide have a lot more experience at outside linebacker.
