Cox/Getty Images)A new report has revealed when exactly star Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered his ankle injury in the SEC Championship Game win over Georgia.According to AL.com, the Crimson Tide’s sophomore quarterback suffered his high ankle sprain on their fourth offensive snap of the game.Tagovailoa attempted to gut out the injury, but was eventually replaced by Jalen Hurts.It was a bad game for Tagovailoa, who had been the Heisman Trophy favorite up until that point. Now, many expect Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray to win the award.Alabama is reportedly frustrated by this, as Tagovailoa’s poor showing against Georgia was mostly due to him trying to play injured.“Tua suffered the high ankle sprain — a bad one — on Alabama’s fourth snap vs. Georgia, not on the play during the fourth quarter. Frustrating for people at Alabama is that Tua trying to gut it out and stay in the game may end up costing him the Heisman,” AL.com reporter Matt Zenitz tweeted.Tua suffered the high ankle sprain — a bad one — on Alabama’s fourth snap vs. Georgia, not on the play during the fourth quarter.Frustrating for people at Alabama is that Tua trying to gut it out and stay in the game may end up costing him the Heisman.https://t.co/ukkVKguxs3— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) December 6, 2018Tagovailoa has already lost out on one major award.
