Tua passes latest medical test … According to several published reports, the three-month follow-up Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa had after he underwent season-ending hip surgery in October was “as positive as possible.” The report also indicated that Tagovailoa could be cleared for football activities in about a month, meaning he’s already been ruled out of on-field testing at this month’s scouting combine in Indianapolis. However, that timetable also means that in all likelihood Tagovailoa will be able to throw for pro scouts in the latter part of March or early April. And for the record, Tagovailoa will be at this month’s combine, where he will undergo extensive medical testing by NFL doctors. Tagovailoa, of course, would likely have been a lock to be a top 5 prospect for this year’s draft prior to the injury, but his status is currently somewhat up in the air because of those health concerns. However, even if Tagovailoa’s medicals fully check out at the combine, there is still the question whether team’s will be willing to invest a top 5-10 pick in a player who has suffered that type of injury. Stay tuned!
