(Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)Terrell Lewis has the talent to be the next game-breaking edge rusher out of Alabama. His health hasn’t cooperated to this point in his college career.In the 2017 season opener against Florida State, Lewis suffered what proved to be a season-ending elbow injury. He needed surgery to repair a ligament, which cost him the remainder of that season.After recovering from that setback, Lewis tore an ACL in the summer of 2018, costing him all of last season. He missed this spring as he finished his recovery.Now, just over a week away from the season opener against Duke, Lewis is finally back to where he wants to be, and is working to break into the Alabama rotation at linebacker.From AL.com:“I’m 100 percent, I would say,” Lewis said. “There’s nothing that’s holding me back from doing anything. I feel real good now. … As far as the spring, strength-wise, I wasn’t where I wanted to be as far as being able to hold the point of attack and go against 300-pound linemen. But now, staying focused with rehab and stuff like that got me right. And getting stronger and then just getting more comfortable with being back on the field, that helped me a lot.”His ability is starting to flash in a major way at Crimson Tide practice as well. The AL.com piece describes a drill in which Lewis made offensive tackle Tommy Brown, a current backup for the Tide and a class of 2018 four-star player, look pretty bad. Saban was just yards away observing, and had some nice things to say about how Lewis has fought back from injury.“He’s worked hard all summer,” Tide coach Nick Saban said in early August. “We keep these Catapult (GPS tracking) numbers on guys in terms of what their explosive movements are and how much they can duplicate it, and he’s back to a level higher than he was before he got hurt two years ago. So we’re really pleased with the work that he’s done and how he’s recovered.”Terrell Lewis should have plenty of opportunity to show off the five-star talent he brought to Tuscaloosa this fall. Hopefully, his body finally gives him that chance.[AL.com]last_img read more
