Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his first public comments Saturday after suffering a season-ending hip dislocation against Mississippi State:

Tagovailoa suffered the injury after two Bulldog defenders tackled him as he was throwing the ball away late in the first half of his team’s 38-7 win. He was carted off the field.

The 6’1″, 218-pound junior had enjoyed a fantastic season until that point, throwing 33 touchdowns and just three interceptions for the No. 5 Crimson Tide. He was playing on a surgically repaired right ankle.

Of note, he completed 14 of 18 passes for 256 yards and two scores against the Bulldogs before the hip injury.
