Days away from its big game against LSU, Alabama feels very good about the status of its star quarterback.

The expectation, according to sources, is Tua Tagovailoa will play against LSU on Saturday and that he’ll likely look healthier and less limited than what most outsiders are probably expecting. Rehab and recovery have gone very well for Tagovailoa, who is now 16 days removed from undergoing surgery to repair the high-ankle sprain he suffered against Tennessee.
