VIDEO: Tua Tagovailoa Limps off Field and Exits Game After Getting Sacked by Tennessee Defender

Injuries are beginning to pile on in Tuscaloosa. Star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was taken down by a Tennessee defender, who wrapped him up around the ankles for a sack. Tagovailoa appears to have suffered a possible injury on the play, as he limped off the field following the hit.

He was then seen walking towards the medical tent with a bit of a limp, and commentators suggested that he may have injured his ankle on the sack.

After being briefly examined in the medical tent, and replaced in the game by Mac Jones, Tagovailoa was then spotted limping slowly with medical staff towards Alabama's locker room.

This is certainly not the news Bama fans were hoping for, right in the middle of what is a potential Heisman season for their star quarterback.

It's definitely a positive sign that Tagovailoa was able to walk off under his own power, but the fact that he was sent to the locker room for further examination doesn't bode well for his return in this one.

We'll provide updates as they become available.
