The Heisman Trophy candidate and projected No. 1 total pick out within the NFL draft suffered a excessive ankle sprain Oct. 19 towards Tennessee and had surgical procedure to fix it. Tagovailoa has practiced this week and the indicators are encouraging for Saturday, nevertheless it is still noticed if he has the mobility to care for a skilled defensive entrance like LSU’s for 4 quarters.
