Report: Tua Tagovailoa’s injury a ‘sprain,’ to be back at practice soon

The news regarding Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s injury is good, as the sophomore quarterback who is competing with Jalen Hurts for the starting job is expected to be back at practice sooner than thought, per Matt Zenitz.

The injury which occurred on Tuesday on the opening day of the Crimson Tide’s practice is believed to be only a sprain. Tagovailoa suffered the injury by hitting the helmet of an offensive lineman on his follow through.

Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that Tagovailoa would most likely be back for spring practice, but the timetable of his return was not set.

“I talked to some people over there,” Low told  The RoundTable on WJOX-FM. “I know there was some concern on the swelling, but the latest information that I have is that he is going to be out for part of the spring, but they do expect him to be back before the spring is over. So we’ll see how that goes. He’s getting it checked out today, and sometimes that can be a fluid situation. But I don’t think it’s one of those situations where he’s going to miss — again it could change — but that latest information I have is that he won’t miss the entire spring.”
