WATCH: Tua Tagovailoa in Good Spirits Ahead of Hip Surgery

Tua Tagovailoa’s college career may have come to an unfortunate end after suffering a serious hip injury on Saturday, November 16 against Mississippi State. Tagovailoa, who entered the game with an injured ankle, suffered a dislocated hip against the bulldogs which forced him to be airlifted to Birmingham before undergoing surgery.

A friend of Tua, whose name is Keke Prewitt, took to social media to share a video of the star signal-caller ahead of his planned surgery.

And despite the severity of the injury, Tagovailoa remained in good spirits.

It is great to see Tua remaining positive throughout the entire ordeal. Now, once he is fully recovered, Tua will look to resume his career in the NFL. We’ll just have to wait and see how long it will take for the quarterback to get back to full strength.

Tagovailoa also shared his own photo from the hospital along with a message.

“OHANA means FAMILY, and FAMILY means no one gets left behind,” he wrote on Instagram.

Throughout his career with the Crimson Tide, the Hawaii native has thrown for 7,442 yards and 87 touchdowns. He entered the year as a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Up next for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide will be a virtual off-week when they play host to the Western Carolina Catamounts at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, November 23. Kickoff between the Crimson Tide and FCS squad is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
