    The hip injury Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered this past Saturday against Mississippi State will cost him the remainder of the season. As well as that, it will likely end his Crimson Tide career.

    Though, there does seem to at least be some light at the end of the tunnel. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Tua Tagovailoa is expected to resume athletic activities in three months. He will return to throwing during the spring.

    The official diagnosis for Tua’s injury is a right hip dislocation and posterior wall fracture. It has been compared to the career-ending injury Bo Jackson suffered years back, but the hope is that Tagovailoa won’t suffer the same fate.

    The Heisman candidate’s surgery is said to have gone well, leading to speculation that while a long-term injury, this won’t impact Tagovailoa’s ability to play in the NFL.
