Tua Tagovailoa Undergoes 'Tightrope' Surgery On Ankle For 2nd Time

Oct 20, 2019 11:12 PM

Tua Tagovailoa will miss Alabama's game next week against Arkansas after undergoing surgery to help repair a high-ankle sprain.

Tagovailoa is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

"Our physicians performed a successful tight-rope procedure on his right ankle this morning," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "This is the same injury, but the opposite ankle that Tua injured last season. Tua will miss next week's game against Arkansas, but we expect a full and speedy recovery."

Tagovailoa had the "tightrope" procedure on his other ankle following the SEC Championship Game last season and returned in time to compete in the College Football Playoff.

Daniel Snyder Overruled Jay Gruden On Drafting Dwayne Haskins

Oct 4, 2019 11:24 AM

Jay Gruden was against Washington's decision to draft Dwayne Haskins at No. 15 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Gruden wanted a more experienced quarterback with Alex Smith out for the season.

Daniel Snyder overruled Gruden and Washington selected.

Haskins already feels as though he is not the preferred quarterback of Gruden, which complicates the station.

Colt McCoy has taken first team reps this week in preparation for Week 5.
