Aside from Tua Tagovailoa, Moses was probably the most important player on the Crimson Tide roster. Between his experience and his skill set, the 6 foot 3, 235 pound star was widely considered to be one of the best linebackers in the nation.

Moses was picked unanimously on CBS Sports’ preseason All-American team and was a first-team pick on the Associated Press All-America team.

Due to his ability to play both inside linebacker and outside linebacker, many expected Moses to build on an impressive 2018 campaign that saw him rack up 86 tackles.

This marks the second time in his career that Moses has gone down with a big injury. He previously missed the College Football Playoff during his freshman season with a foot injury.

Moses’ injury also makes him the second Crimson Tide linebacker to go down this summer. Earlier this month, senior Josh McMillan went down with a season-ending knee injury.
