How’s the medical report? It’s not just the hip Tua Tagovailoa dislocated Nov. 16 at Mississippi State, ending his junior season. Tagovailoa also has had “tightrope” surgery on both his ankles — the left in December 2018 and the right last October. He also had surgery for a broken index finger on his left (throwing) hand last March and played through a knee injury last October.

“It’s all (about) durability,” an AFC scout said. “Durability and just the play style, because obviously, he’s ultra-instinctive, just a gamer. The problem is the injury history.” The combine will provide the first opportunity for NFL doctors to examine Tua Tagovailoa, who won’t be ready to work out in Indy but intends to hold a personal pro day before the draft. So, while all signs are good so far, each team — with its own doctors, and its own level of risk tolerance — will be able to come to its own conclusions about how well Tagovailoa’s hip will hold up, whether there are long-term risks such as arthritis, etc.

The big question with Tua will be, can he stay healthy?  Whoever drafts him will be taking a big time risk.
