Alabama faces the not-so-easy task of replacing behemoth Marcell Dareus on its defensive line in 2011, and so far spring practice isn't doing much to help the Tide find a replacement. Last week Kerry Murphy suffered a knee injury that will cost him the chance to play and compete this spring, and on Saturday night Nick Saban announced another defensive lineman will be on the sidelines for a while.
Saban told reporters on Saturday night that defensive end Brandon Moore has been suspended indefinitely for that old standby, a violation of team rules and policy. Saban didn't make it sound like Moore would be back within a couple of days, either.
"That's indefinite," said the coach. "We don't know what's happening there."
Moore isn't the first member of the Tide defense to be suspended this spring, as cornerback Robby Green was suspended last Monday for violating team rules as well.
Moore played in four games as a freshman in 2010, making three tackles.
