Alabama QB injured, out for the season

Nov 16, 2019

Alabama's star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa dislocated his hip, late in the first half of the Crimson Tide's game against Mississippi State. Tide medical staff says it's a season ending injury. Tagovailoa was injured after a scramble when he was tackled from behind by Bulldogs linebacker Leo Lewis. Tagovailoa needed help getting to his feet and was carted off the field with 3:01 left in the second quarter. The junior had been nursing an ankle injury that needed surgery four weeks ago and caused him to miss a game and a half. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Saturday’s injury was unrelated to the ankle. Saban called it a "freak injury." Alabama officials confirmed Tagovailoa was flown by helicopter to the St. Vincent's Medical Center in Birmingham.
