He is doing fine and he appreciates everyone. 

Tua Tagovailoa suffered a scary hip injury in the second quarterback of Alabama’s matchup with Mississippi State. He was carted off the field and transported from Davis Wade Stadium to St. Vincent Medical Center in Birmingham (Ala.) via helicopter. The junior quarterback was in intense pain and rumors expected the worse, but calming news came from Dr. Lyle Cain.

As the team’s Orthopedic Surgeon, Cain released a statement on Tagovailoa sustaining a dislocated right hip. He said the native Hawaiian is ‘expected’ to make a full recovery – despite having to miss the remainder of this season. Regardless of that, Crimson Tide fans are just relieved to see him okay. He shared a message to the fan base on Twitter, in the aftermath. 

Mac Jones will guide the team in the final two weeks of the regular season, but it’s good to know that Tagovailoa will still have an opportunity to do what he loves.
