Alabama’s Deontae Lawson out vs. MSU, may miss games, per sources

Alabama will be without its No. 2 tackler for Saturday’s game against Mississippi State as redshirt sophomore linebacker Deontay Lawson is sidelined with an ankle injury, sources told ESPN on Friday. Missed multiple games.

Coach Nick Saban said earlier this week that Lawson was “very questionable” against Mississippi State. Lawson is unavailable for practice this week, which means the Crimson Tide will have to dig deep at the position where the defense has the least experience.

Lawson totaled 26 tackles this season, 3.5 for loss, before exiting last week’s Ole Miss game in the second quarter.

Sophomore Jihad Campbell will start in Lawson’s place. When Lawson left the Mississippi State game, Campbell took his place and finished with seven tackles.

Alabama is tied with Florida for second in the SEC in scoring defense (13.5 ppg) and Mississippi State allowed 301 total yards last week.

BamaCentral.com first reported Lawson would miss the Mississippi State game.
