Tua Tagovailoa carted off field vs. Mississippi State

Tua Tagovailoa carted off field vs. Mississippi State

Earlier Saturday afternoon, Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa left the game against Mississippi State with an apparent injury. He was helped off the ground by medical staff, avoiding putting weight on his right leg. He was also heard screaming in pain and is heading to receive an X-ray.

Alabama returned to the same stage with Tagovailoa under center last season, but lost 44-16 to Clemson.

Now comes the worst possible news, as Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy reports Tagovailoa will undergo surgery for a hip fracture, which is similar to the one that ended the great Bo Jackson's career. After Alabama had a week off, Tagovailoa played last week against LSU.

The 21-year-old had put Alabama in control, guiding them to a 35-7 lead, and was set to come out of the game when he sustained the injury. He was replaced by redshirt sophomore Mac Jones.

The country's crude oil output hit a record 13 million bpd this month and will grow more than expected in 2019 and 2020, the U.S. Cushing inventories had grown for five weeks in a row through November 1, according to government data.


Nick Saban said in his halftime interview that the injury could be serious.

Late in the second quarter, Tagovailoa was taken down by two defenders as he threw the ball away.

The collision bloodied the quarterback nose and forced him to be carted off the field. "That was going to be his last series, we were going to do a 2-minute before the half just for practice".
