Nick Saban issues new Tua Tagovailoa injury update following the win over Tennessee
Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was injured in Saturday night’s 35-13 win over Tennessee.
With 7:30 left in the second quarter and Alabama winning 21-10, Tagovailoa went down with what appeared to be a lower-leg injury. He came out of the game and went to the locker room before halftime. The Alabama quarterback never returned to the game, and there was footage of Tagovailoa leaving Bryant-Denny Stadium in an ambulance.
Tagovailoa later returned to the stadium before the game ended.
Following the game while speaking with ESPN’s Molly McGrath, Saban said Tagovailoa has a high ankle sprain, and he said that he’d likely be out a week or two.
Obviously, this is great news for the Crimson Tide. Alabama faces Arkansas next Saturday before the off week prior to the LSU game on November 9.
Tagovailoa finished 11-of-12 for 155 yards and one INT. Backup Mac Jones finished 6-of-11 for 72 yards.
