Nick Saban Issues Update On Tua Tagovailoa’s Injury

-

Alabama head coach Nick Saban provided an injury update for his quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, following the Crimson Tide’s win over Tennessee on Saturday night.

Tagovailoa suffered an ankle injury in the first half of the Crimson Tide’s video game on Saturday night. He left the game at the end of the 2nd quarter and did not return.

Video of the injury did not look great.

Saban announced following the game that his quarterback suffered a high-ankle sprain and would likely be out for a couple of weeks.

” I think he will probably not have the ability to play next week,” Saban informed press reporters after the win. “He’s gon na get another MRI in the early morning, and after that from there we’ll discover what he’s gon na do from there.”

Tagovailoa had completed 11 of 12 passes for 155 yards prior to exiting the video game with an injury. He was replaced by Mac Jones at quarterback.

Jones completed 6 of 11 passes for 72 yards.

” Mac did some advantages, and we believe Mac is capable,” Saban stated, “so we have a lot of self-confidence in Mac.”

Alabama hosts Arkansas next Saturday prior to getting a week off. The Crimson Tide play No. 2 LSU on Nov. 9.
