Alabama QB Tagovailoa carted off field vs Mississippi State

Unfortunately, that victory was overshadowed by the injury to star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa was injured while being dragged down late in the first half, with the Tide up four touchdowns, and No. 4 Alabama went on to beat Mississippi State 38-7. It happened when he was tackled by two Bulldogs defensive players while rolling out.

Tagovaila was carted off the field and later taken to a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama to undergo CAT scans and MRIs, head coach Nick Saban told reporters after the game. Now Alabama is facing the possibility of trying to impress the committee without Tagovailoa, the Heisman Trophy runner-up from last season and a potential top-10 selection in the NFL Draft.

"That was going to be his last series", Saban said as he headed to the locker room. "We were going to put Mac in and we said 'Let's put Tua in before the half for two-minute (drill) just for practice".

The injury occurred on the same right leg that Tagovailoa had surgery on for a sprained ankle suffered earlier this season against Tennessee. "I really don't make decisions based on players getting hurt".

Tagovailoa was 14 of 18 for 256 yards and two touchdowns before suffering his injury. Mac Jones replaced Tagovailoa, who did not join the team on the sideline after halftime.

Tagovailoa missed Alabama's 48-7 win over Arkansas on October 26 but returned to start against LSU last week.

At the end of the day, this is something that no one ever wants to see.

"If these reports prove to be true, our thoughts and prayers go out to Tua and his family", CFP executive director Bill Hancock said to ESPN.
