Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has taken no time off in quest of rehabilitating the season-ending hip injury he suffered at Alabama.
Tagovailoa, 22, is rehabbing at Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, located in Birmingham, Alabama, relatively close to his former University. The 6-foot-1 quarterback was videotaped excelling on the fast feet ladder drill.
After undergoing hip surgery last November, there were several concerns about Tagovailoa ever being able to go under center again. Injuries potentially kept the former Crimson Tide from being selected No. 1 in last month’s NFL Draft.
However, Miami was confident in Tagovailoa’s recovery process after sending doctors to the Scouting Combine in February to test Tagovailoa with a physical. He passed it.
It’s unclear if Tagovailoa will see the field this season, whether it’s to continue rehabbing his hip injury or to let him learn behind a veteran, like Ryan Fitzpatrick.
