Alabama junior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will miss the remainder of the 2019 season with a hip injury he sustained in Saturday’s win over Mississippi State, per Aaron Suttles of The Athletic.

Tagovailoa scrambled to evade two Mississippi State defenders but was tackled while throwing the ball away. One of the defenders landed on him. He lay on the field for over a minute before standing and putting no weight on his right foot.

He was carted off the field and flown via helicopter to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Birmingham for further evaluation, per Cecil Hurt of The Tuscaloosa News. Coach Nick Saban confirmed that report in his postgame press conference.

Redshirt sophomore Mac Jones now appears set to start the remainder of this season for Alabama. Jones is 45 of 65 (69.2%) for the season with four touchdowns and one interception.
