Missouri was hanging in with the Crimson Tide early, but Alabama has opened it up.Tagovailoa has been dealing with a sprain, but practiced through it. From Nick Saban earlier in the week:“Tua has taken every rep in practice. We did put a brace on him just to protect him, but he’s been able to do all the work in practice, so that’s not an issue.”Luckily for Alabama, it still has Jalen Hurts, if Tagovailoa misses time. After months of transfer rumors, he opted to stay with the team.
