Tagovailoa suffered a dislocated hip – a rare injury for an athlete – while being tackled during a game against Mississippi State. His recovery is expected to last at least 6-12 months, according to a surgeon interviewed by CBS Sports, although it could threaten his career if severe enough. The surgeon did not know all the details of the injury but said the injury is more common in automobile accidents.
He was expected to be a high NFL draft pick in 2020 if he chose to bypass his senior season. He is a junior.
Tagovailoa is known for his Christian faith. The eye black on each side of his face is shaped like a cross. His social media accounts lists 1 Corinthians 2:9, which says, “‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ — the things God has prepared for those who love him.”
