Tua Tagovailoa #13 of the Alabama Crimson Tide reacts after throwing an interception in the first half against the Tennessee Volunteers at Bryant-Denny Stadium on October 19, 2019 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Tagovailoa had been nursing an ankle injury and Alabama was considering holding him out of this game. He missed the second half of that game as well as the Tide's 48-7 win over Arkansas the following week. Alabama's statement does not make mention of said fracture; assuming Alabama's statement rules out such an injury, it is the best-case scenario for Tagovailoa as he looks to continue his career, either at Alabama or in the NFL.
A promising future for Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was dealt a crushing blow on Saturday.

Late in the second quarter, Tagovailoa was taken down by two defenders as he threw the ball away. He appeared unable to support himself on his right leg as he was helped to the cart and driven off the field. "He is expected to make a full recovery but will miss the remainder of the season", said Dr. Lyle Cain, Alabama's orthopedic surgeon. "I don't think it's related to any other injury that he has", Alabama coach Nick Saban said. He was replaced by Jones, who went 7 for 11 for 94 yards.
"I don't worry about players getting hurt, but certainly don't want to see anybody get hurt, especially him".
Tagovailoa played well against LSU, passing for more than 400 yards, but he was gimpy at times, favoring his right ankle. Alabama was leading 35-7, but it was made a decision to let Tagovailoa play one more possession to get some work in the two-minute drill. Harris finished with 88 yards rushing and 51 yards receiving.
