4 Alabama linebackers suffer injuries vs. Florida State.  http://trib.al/yFLHrlA



Quote
Four Alabama linebackers suffered injuries during the Crimson Tide's win over Florida State on Saturday, including star inside linebacker Rashaan Evans.

Evans, who didn't play at all during the second half, suffered a groin injury, according to coach Nick Saban.

"We'll have to check it out," Saban said.

Outside linebacker Terrell Lewis sustained an elbow injury, outside linebacker Christian Miller suffered a biceps injury and outside linebacker Anfernee Jennings sprained his ankle.

Saban labeled both Lewis and Miller as "very questionable."

Why Alabama isn't in panic mode after losses at OLB


Quote
Keith Holcombe doesn't call himself a Mike or Will.

He's a linebacker.

And on Monday, Alabama coach Nick Saban said the redshirt junior could even fill in as an edge rusher.

Holcombe's reaction?

"That's the coaches' decision," he said. "If they want me to do that, I'm more than happy to do whatever I have to do to help this team out."

Holcombe is confident he could buttress the corps of outside linebackers whose depth has been impinged after Terrell Lewis and Christian Miller went down with season-ending injuries and Anfernee Jennings suffered a high-ankle sprain that could keep him sidelined for multiple games.

That's because Alabama has a history of cross-training linebackers.

"It definitely helps," said Shaun Dion Hamilton, who started at the Mike spot last weekend in the Tide's victory over Florida State. "If something happens, the next man can step up and not lose a beat. It all goes back to Coach Saban getting us ready for a situation before it happens."

In many ways, Saban formulates these kinds of contingency plans before players even set foot on campus. Prior to his enrollment, freshman Van Darius Cowan anticipated playing inside at Alabama. He is now learning how to attack from the edge. In the nine months since he's been on campus, Dylan Moses has practiced with both linebacker position groups.

The three Alabama players who missed Saturday's game against Fresno State are all working toward being able to return at some point soon --

Quote
With linebackers Rashaan Evans (groin) and Anfernee Jennings (ankle), Saban said it's too early to tell if they'll be able to play Saturday but noted that both are "making good progress in their rehab."

"If they have a chance to do some things in practice, there may be a chance that they can play in the game," Saban said.

As far as new injuries, right guard Lester Cotton and linebacker Dylan Moses will miss practice Monday with unspecified injuries. Neither injury is serious, though, Saban said. Cotton will return to practice Tuesday while Moses will "be back soon," Saban said.

Alabama football: One LB remains limited as Tide opens Vanderbilt prep


Quote
Alabama football defense received a boost as three key linebackers all returned to practice on Monday.

Alabama worked outside in the heat as the team began preparing for Vanderbilt. Alabama travels to Nashville for its matchup with Vanderbilt on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Freshman Dylan Moses was back at practice after missing the game Saturday.

Senior Rashaan Evans was back in a regular defensive jersey after missing the last two games.
