Alabama loses starting LB Christian Miller for season with torn biceps

Alabama loses starting LB Christian Miller for season with torn biceps”

The losses leave No. 1 Alabama short-handed at linebacker with Rashaan Evans nursing a groin injury and Anfernee Jennings dealing with a sprained ankle. Four linebackers to be exact.

Terrell Lewis and Christian Miller were hurt in the season-opening 24-7 win over No. 3 Florida State.

Miller, the team's starting SAM linebacker, tore his biceps, while Lewis tore a ligament in his elbow, per Zenitz. Jennings left the game in the first half but would return, albeit briefly, while Evans sat out the entire second half after recovering a blocked field goal by junior defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick on the final play of the first half Saturday.

"It means what it means", Saban says. It creates opportunities for other people in the program, and we're going to have to take some of the younger guys we have and try to develop them more quickly. Both players entered the season as key contributors, and both play outside linebacker.

"I think there were times where he did a good job, he stepped up and made some really good throws", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said Monday.

One replacement option is former James Clemens standout LaByran Ray.
