Tua Tagovailoa told his teammates when he'd be back after suffering injury
All eyes are on Tua Tagovailoa’s ankle injury moving forward.
The Alabama quarterback left the game with over seven minutes left in the second quarter against Tennessee, and he did not return to the game. Instead, he left the stadium in an ambulance only to return to celebrate with his teammates after the win over the Vols.
Nick Saban told ESPN after the win that Tagovailoa suffered a high ankle sprain and he’d be out a week or two. That obviously means he’ll miss the Arkansas game Saturday.
After the game against the Hogs, Alabama has a bye week before hosting LSU, and that’s when the Alabama quarterback told his teammates he’d return.
According to Terrell Lewis, Tua Tagovailoa told teammates after the game, “I’ll be back for LSU”

The Game of the Century is still on, and all indications are that Tagovailoa will play for the Tide, assuming the timetable is correct.
Tagovailoa finished 11-of-12 for 155 yards and one touchdown. Backup Mac Jones finished 6-of-11 for 72 yards.
