Former Alabama football linebacker Dylan Moses said Monday that he played most of the 2020 season on a torn meniscus.

He was initially told it was a bone bruise and was not diagnosed until after the season.

During his Pro Day press conference, Moses confirmed that he underwent surgery in February and will not perform drills during Tuesday's Pro Day as he continues to rehab and conduct interviews with teams.

Nick Saban added that he was aware of Moses having his knee worked on by the team doctors but could not confirm that he tore the meniscus.

The injury likely came during the third game of the season in a 63-48 win on the road against Ole Miss. Moses recorded 13 tackles in that game.

Moses has a history of knee injuries, missing the 2019 season with a torn ACL that he later confirmed still provided him pain as recently as January.

He returned to Alabama for his senior season as he continued to rehab, looking to improve his draft stock in 2021.
