Tua Tagovailoa injury update: What we know

BREAKING: Tua Tagovailoa Out For Season With Dislocated Hip

"For the past 24 hours our medical team has consulted with multiple orthopedic experts across the country, who specialize in hip injuries and surgeries", the statement reads.

Alabama officials confirmed Tagovailoa was flown by helicopter to the St. Vincent's Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama. He couldn't put pressure on his right leg when he was helped up by trainers. Tagovailoa suffered a dislocated right hip in the second quarter and was carted off the field midway through the eventual 38-7 win.

Winston passed for 313 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, but turnovers were his downfall as has often been the case. Evans did snare the longest pass of that game, a 41-yarder that set up Godwin's touchdown.


Hopefully Tua's injury will not impact his draft stock too much and hopefully he is healthy by the time pre-draft festivities begin early this Spring.

Nick Saban said in his halftime interview that the injury could be serious. I don't think anything he did affected his performance in the first half.

"I don't worry about players getting hurt, but certainly don't want to see anybody get hurt, especially him". And we hate it that he got injured. We hate it for his family.

The drive was going to be Tagovailoa's final one of the game, Saban told ESPN. "That was going to be his last series, we were going to do a 2-minute before the half just for practice". That's embarrassing for a beat writer to admit, but it's the truth.
