No.1 – He has been cleared by his doctors

Everybody in the world who watches college football understands that Tua Tagovailoa has had some injury issues in college football. What they do not realize though, is that Tua is a machine. He was injured most recently against Mississippi State when he suffered a gruesome hip injury. That was in October of 2019. Nearly 6 months later, this video was posted on Twitter about a Pro Day that was set up for Tua.

That looks like a pretty sharp quarterback who just came off of hip surgery not to long ago. Yes, he had injuries to his ankle as well, and even to his hand. That is what happens when you play one of the roughest sports in the world. As Tua Tagovailoa says, “I’m not playing badminton. I’m not on the swim team,” Tagovailo via ESPN. “Football is a physical sport. You’re gonna get hurt. That just comes with it. And it was just very unfortunate that I got hurt every season.”

Tua Tagovailoa completed 70% of his throws to just 9 interceptions over the last 2 seasons. Find me another quarterback that can do that with such a “terrible” injury history.
