Report: Alabama preseason All-American linebacker Dylan Moses suffers serious injury
It’s been a terribly rough training camp down in Tuscaloosa with one major injury after another for the Crimson Tide but this latest news may be the worst injury yet suffered by Alabama.
According to reports out of Tuscaloosa, junior linebacker Dylan Moses tore his ACL on Tuesday and is expected to miss the upcoming season. Keeping in mind Alabama already lost projected starting middle linebacker Josh McMillion to a season-ending injury and is planning to start true freshman Chrisitan Harris in his place, losing Moses would compound the Tide’s issues at linebacker.
The news of Moses’ injury was first reported by Aaron Suttles on his WJOX 94.5 FM radio show, “3 Man Front” on Wednesday. It was confirmed by AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.
Moses led Alabama with 86 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, one pass break up and one forced fumble last fall. The Baton Rouge native represented Alabama at the latest SEC Media Days and was expected to be among the key leaders for the defense on the field this season.
He was named Second Team All-America by the Walter Camp Association and was honored as a Second Team All-SEC selection by the league’s coaches following the 2018 season.
