Tua Tagovailoa has dislocated hip, fracture and is out for the season
Initial reports indicate that Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s hip injury is every bit as severe as it initially looked.
The Athletic’s Aaron Suttles said Saturday that Tagovailoa was out for the season with a dislocated hip and posterior wall fracture.

A surgery would raise serious questions about Tagovailoa’s health ahead of next April’s NFL Draft. Comparisons have also been made to the hip injury Bo Jackson suffered that ended his career.
Tagovailoa was screaming in pain on the field as he was carted off due to the injury, indicating that this was clearly more significant than the ankle issue he suffered a few weeks back.
