MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was flown to Houston and will have surgery on his hip on Monday.
Tagovailoa suffered a dislocated right hip when he was sacked by two Mississippi State defenders in the second quarter of Saturday's game. He spent the night at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Birmingham.
The Crimson Tide's orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Lyle Cain, released a statement Sunday reading, "For the past 24 hours our medical team has consulted with multiple orthopedic experts across the county who specialize in hip injuries and surgeries. Based on that research, Tua is being flown to Houston tonight to be evaluated and is scheduled to have hip surgery Monday. As previously stated, we anticipate a full recovery. The main focus has been, and will remain, on Tua, his family, and making sure we are providing them the best medical care possible."
The injury will end the star quarterback's season, and possibly his Alabama career.
