This has been a tough year to be an Alabama linebacker.

OLB Anfernee Jennings had perhaps his finest game in his young career against Clemson. Being that he plays linebacker for Alabama this season, it’s almost inevitable that he’d suffer a debilitating injury in the process.

Hate it for the young man, who played extra minutes while banged up for a good part of the season as some of his mates were forced out. This will certainly mean more time for Terrell Lewis and Christian Miller, though you may see Da’Shawn Hand playing on the edge against some of Georgia’s heavier packages.

Get well, Anfernee. Roll Tide.
