    Post Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa Suffers Horrible Injury

    Top NFL draft prospect (and star quarterback at Alabama) Tua Tagovailoa is out for the season with a dislocated hip with a posterior wall fracture, according Alabama beat writer Aaron Suttles of The Athletic. Tagovailoa was carted off the field earlier today in the Crimson Tide’s game against Mississippi State.

    Now, Tagovailoa’s injury could put his entire football career in jeopardy. Dr. David J. Chao (also known as Pro Football Doc) details the potential ramifications for the San Diego Union-Tribune. Dr. Chao clarifies that the injury is not identical to Bo Jackson‘s career-ending injury, but is a comparison that is sure to be made. In his previous experience as a former NFL team doctor, Chao recalls one experience with this injury. The player returned in eight weeks, but retired at the end of the season.

    This injury injects new levels of uncertainty into Tagovailoa’s future. Not only is he looking at a prolonged rehab, but there now may be questions as to whether he should return to school for his senior season in an attempt to rebuild his draft stock. Granted, this injury could also allow him to fall to a more advantageous long term NFL situation. A lot remains unknown, but one thing is clear: Alabama will be without their starting quarterback for the rest of this season.

    To be fair the website didn't cite the guy as a reference. They just posted a link to a San Diego Union Tribune article that references him. So if you would fault anybody it would be the newspaper.

    His injury might keep him from being picked high in the 1st round to a team maybe taking a chance on him late in the 1st round or maybe 2nd round.

    True though they could have excised that whole paragraph from their web post and still have a good post or should have made a note about Chao's complicated standing in the medical community. To cite the newspaper without context of the person the Union Tribune interviewed shows a lack of due diligence.

    I'm pretty sure all 4 of the sports rumors sites are run by like 6 total guys combined. I don't even think they hockey/football/basketball up until a few years ago so it isn't like it is a big operation or anything. Oh yeah and they are completely free.
