Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa with right hip injury, bloody nose off against Mississippi State



Tua Tagovailoa's ankle was an important plot before Alabama's fifth match on Saturday in the US state of Mississippi. Tagovailoa was knocked off the pitch after a nasty first-half strike.

Tagovailoa was unable to strain the right side of his body after he had injured his right hip. According to Molly McGrath, a reporter for ESPN, he was removed from the car in the locker room and reportedly "screamed" in pain. Coaches also treated Tagovailoa for a bloody nose he had suffered when his face mask hit the lawn head-on.

"He hurt his hip, I do not know … That would be his last series, we wanted to train with him two minutes before halftime," coach Nick Saban said at halftime.

Tagovailoa played well up to that point and looked good after he had to cope with the defeat of 46:41

last week's No. 1 LSU. At the time of his injury he was 14 out of 18 for 256 yards and two touchdowns. Bama had a 35-7 lead with touchdowns on his first five possessions and Saban made it clear that Tagovailoa is on the way to being taken out of the game.

Saban will undoubtedly receive a lot of questions about the decision to play Tagovailoa – in general, and especially so late in the second quarter given the score.

Mac Jones will be playing for the Crimson Tide. Previously, he had a season start against Arkansas, as Tagovailoa initially could not play because of his ankle sprain. Jones was solid against the Razorbacks, passing 18 by 22 for 235 yards and three touchdowns. Jones might race against the Bulldogs on Saturday as Tagovailoa was listed as a game decision.
