Tua Tagovailoa’s Doctor Is ‘Extremely Pleased,’ Zero Restrictions

University of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has the green light for the 2020 NFL Draft this summer.

Tagovailoa is one of the biggest wild cards at the top of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Alabama quarterback suffered a dislocation and fracture in his hip in the midst of the Crimson Tide’s season last year. If that had not happened, we’d probably be discussing whether or not it should be him or LSU phenom Joe Burrow who is worthy of the top overall pick. Now, Tagovailoa could prove to provide some value to a team even if he still lands within the Top 5.

Health is still a key factor when trying to his future as a quarterback in the NFL, but he has recently been getting some good news on that front. 22-year-old’s representation providing positive updates on his health, but Dr. Lyle Cain, an Orthopaedic Surgeon & Sports Medicine Specialist at the Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, has also seen tremendous progress.

“I am extremely pleased,” Cain said of Tagovailoa’s recovery. “If you told me four, almost five, months ago now that he’d be where he is now, I think I would have been very happy. I think he’s done extremely well for where he started out.”

While he is trending in the right direction, it seems unlikely that he’ll be pushing for that No. 1 spot. Not only has Burrow solidified himself for that top selection by checking off seemingly every box imaginable with one of the greatest single collegiate seasons college football has ever seen, but, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tagovailoa cannot physically meet with teams and cannot perform at a pro day to further bolster his draft stock.

Still, the quarterback is looked at as a concrete Top 5 selection and could possibly come off the board at No. 3 overall if the Detroit Lions sell that selection to the highest bidder.
