Alabama lost perhaps its most indispensable player less than a week before the start of the season.

Preseason All-American Dylan Moses – arguably the top linebacker in the country and almost certainly a future first-round pick – tore his ACL in practice on Tuesday and will be out for the season, according to Matt Zenitz of

This leaves the Crimson Tide in an unenviable position just a few days before the start of the season, as the team was already thin at the interior linebacker position after redshirt senior Josh McMillon – the team's second-team option behind Moses – suffered a season-ending knee injury during fall camp.

This means Alabama will now be starting two true freshmen at linebacker.

The Tide already bumped four-star freshman Christian Harris to a starting spot before Moses' injury, but now true freshman former four-star prospect Shane Lee will start at Mike linebacker in Moses' place.
