Bama QB Tua Tagovailoa undergoes surgery for high-ankle sprain

The bad news is that Tua Tagovailoa sprained his ankle.

The good news is twofold: It's not the same ankle he injured against UGA in the SEC Championship Game and; it is the same surgery he had last year. The new technique had him near 100% by the time Oklahoma showed up in the playoff semifinal.

Via ESPN with a statement from Coach Nick Saban:
"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, who currently leads the FBS in QBR (95.6), has thrown 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions.

The junior from Hawaii 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.

I dunno about y'all, but I really wish he'd stop trying to be a hero. The boy might get hurt, or something.
