Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa continues to make progress in his recovery from the hip injury that brought his final season at Alabama to an early end.

Tagovailoa went for a CT scan of his hip recently and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the results were “as positive as possible.” The fracture in his hip has healed and, per the report, Tagovailoa has good range of motion.

Tagovailoa was injured last November and had surgery a short time later to repair his hip.

Agent Leigh Steinberg said last month that Tagovailoa was expected to be healthy enough to hold a throwing session for teams ahead of the draft in April. He’ll get another medical check at the Scouting Combine and more good news would make those plans closer to becoming reality.

  1. Good. Football as a whole benefits from exciting players who make the game fun to watch. Hope the kid’s injury troubles are behind him.

  2. Hope the team that drafts him does not play him this year. That would be better for both in the long run.

  3. Going to laugh if another team trades up to grab him and the Fins end up with Herbert after all the tank talk

  4. I like Tua but the phrase “positive as possible” reminds me of a phrase my mom used in wanting to find me a date years ago , “she is as cute as she can be”. I learned that phrase really means that’s as cute as she is going to get. Good luck to Tua. Hope he has a successful NFL career.

  5. I hope the kid works out in the NFL, but I don`t want Tua in a Dolphins uniform. I`d rather have Herbert, Love, Eason, or Fromm.

  6. Beware this draft pick!!! No one has even talked about his ankles! Two surgeries prior to the hip! This guy is an egg out there! Trever Lawrence 2021!!!!

  7. since we haven’t had a qb since marino,why waste a pick on reject.draft herbert,and relive the glory yrs.
