Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field in the second quarter with the Crimson Tide winning 35-7 against Mississipi State on Saturday.

Tagovailoa was heard in serious pain according to sideline reporter Molly McGrath.

"He was screaming in pain as medical training staff had to pick him up and carry him off the cart."

During his half-time interview with ESPN, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said that Tagovailoa had a right hip injury.

"He hurt his hip. I don't know anything else more than that," he said. That was going to be his last series of the half. Certainly, I don't want to see anybody get hurt, especially not him."

Tagovailoa left the stadium in an ambulance to get medical attention.

Alabama released the following statement on Saturday night.

“Tua Tagovailoa sustained a right hip dislocation that was immediately reduced at the stadium. He is undergoing further testing to determine the best course of treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery but will miss the remainder of the season.”

Saban will be second-guessed by the national media and fans for leaving in the hobbled star quarterback in the blowout.
