Tua Tagovailoa should soon be able to do more than just light quarterback drills.
Despite breaking the index finger on his throwing hand on Tuesday and undergoing surgery Tuesday night, Alabama’s sophomore quarterback is expected to be able to resume throwing at some point soon, AL.com has learned.
Tagovailoa participated in the Crimson Tide’s practice on Thursday on a very limited basis, just two days after sustaining that injury and undergoing the procedure.
During the media viewing period, Tagovailoa went through some non-throwing drills while being observed by head athletic trainer Jeff Allen.
Tide coach Nick Saban hasn’t addressed the Tagovailoa situation since Tuesday night but will meet with the media again on Tuesday.
KHON2 in Hawaii first reported that Tagovailoa suffered a broken finger and underwent surgery.
