Report: Alabama loses two linebackers for the season in win over Florida State

Alabama picked up a huge win to start its season on Saturday night when it beat Florida State 24-7, but it looks like the Tide may have lost two linebackers in the process.

AL.com's Matt Zenitz is reporting that both Christian Miller and Terrell Lewis are going to miss the rest of the season with injuries they sustained against the Seminoles.

Miller, a redshirt junior listed as Alabama's starter at strongside linebacker on the depth chart, reportedly suffered a torn biceps muscle. Lewis, a sophomore, reportedly tore a ligament in his elbow and is expected to undergo surgery to repair it on Tuesday.

Miller finished with three tackles on Saturday while Lewis had five.

They aren't the only two linebackers dinged up, either, as Zenitz also reports that inside linebacker Rashaan Evans missed the second half after picking up a groin injury, and outside backer Anfernee Jennings left the game with a sprained ankle.
