Alabama sent out an update from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain after Tua Tagovailoa’s surgery on Monday morning.  The doctor said the surgery was a success and his prognosis is excellent.

Tua is expected to travel back to Tuscaloosa in the next few days to begin the rehab process.  It sounds like given the injury, this is the best case scenario.
