Tua Tagovailoa shares encouraging news on his first rehab session
Tua Tagovailoa is focused on a full recovery from the hip surgery that ended his season at Alabama.
Based on the news that Tagovailoa shared with the media on Thursday, there appears to be a good chance that the Crimson Tide quarterback will do just that.
Tagovailoa discussed his first rehab session and said that doctors have told him he’ll get back to playing football “at 100 percent.”
“They were surprised with the amount of movement we could do with resistance,” Tagovailoa told the media, including AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.
Prior to suffering the season-ending injury, Tagovailoa was having another stellar season for Alabama. He passed for 2,840 yards and 33 touchdowns in nine games. And it was widely expected that he’d be one of the top picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.
It’s unclear how Tagovailoa’s injury and recovery process could affect his draft stock for April. But he was asked about his NFL future by the media on Thursday:
