TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama coach Nick Saban expects quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to practice Monday and play against Tennessee this week.
Tagovailoa aggravated a sprained right knee in the third quarter against Missouri Saturday night and didn't return. Saban said Monday that Tagovailoa is "probably better this week than he was last week" and hasn't missed a practice.
He says the nation's highest rated passer could have returned to the Missouri game. The top-ranked Crimson Tide won 39-10 and backup Jalen Hurts played the rest of the way.
