All-American Alabama LB Expected to Miss Entire 2019 Season with Torn ACL
Alabama All-American linebacker Dylan Moses has reportedly suffered a torn ACL in practice Tuesday. He is expected to miss the entire 2019 season as a result of that injury.
Moses, now a junior, was expected to compete for multiple major defensive awards nationally. He was a finalist last season for the Butkus Award, the award given to the nation’s top linebacker.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Wednesday Moses was injured in Tuesday’s practice and is “out for an indefinite period of time.” Saban says the loss is “certainly a character check for our team.”
Moses had a breakout season last year as a Sophomore. In 15 games last season, Moses registered 86 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks for a Crimson Tide defense that was among the best in the country.
Moses missed games as a Freshman due to a foot injury.
