Tua Tagovailoa hip injury recovery timeline revealed
Tua Tagovailoa’s recovery timeline from his hip injury has been revealed.
Tagovailoa suffered a dislocated hip and fracture in Alabama’s win over Mississippi State on Saturday. He underwent surgery in Houston on Monday, and the prognosis for his recover is said to be excellent.
According to information shared by ESPN reporters Adam Schefter and Laura Rutledge, Tagovailoa will be rehabbing daily in Tuscaloosa and be on a partial weight bearing recovery plan for six weeks. He will be able to begin athletic activity again in three months. He should be able to begin throwing again in the spring.

Tagovailoa has another season of eligibility left in college and has the option to return to Alabama for his senior season next fall. He can also enter the NFL Draft, where he would still likely be a high draft pick despite coming off the injury.
For now, the Crimson Tide quarterback is probably just happy that things seem much better than they could have been, especially when people were comparing his injury to Bo Jackson’s career-ending one.
