Alabama freshman linebacker Dylan Moses sustained a foot injury in practice and is out indefinitely, putting his availability in jeopardy for the team’s College Football Playoff semifinal game against Clemson.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban announced on Tuesday that Moses was injured in the previous day’s practice. AL.com reported that Moses would undergo surgery.

Selected to the SEC All-Freshman team, Moses likely will be replaced by sophomore Mack Wilson in the Sugar Bowl matchup versus the defending national champion Tigers (12-1) on New Year’s Day. Wilson returned from injury in the regular-season finale against Auburn.

Moses recorded 30 tackles and 5.5 tackles for loss (including 1.5 sacks) and one interception this season for Alabama (11-1).

Clemson is the top seed and will play the fourth-seeded Crimson Tide for the third consecutive year in the postseason. Alabama beat the Tigers for the 2015 national title, with Clemson turning the tables last season.
