Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa isn’t going to let a season-ending injury impact his NFL dreams.

According to reports, the highly ranked junior still plans on entering his name into the 2020 NFL Draft despite suffering a dislocated and fractured hip injury against Mississippi State on November 16th. He underwent surgery to repair the injury on Monday, and as expected was officially ruled out for the season.

The 21-year old could see his stock fall in the draft due to concerns about his recovery from the injury, but there are still many teams that reportedly have him on his radar (including the Miami Dolphins). He is still expected to be picked in the Top 15 if the draft were held today. Only time will tell if his stock rises or falls come April 2020.

The 2018 SEC Offensive Player of the Year has completed 180 passes for 2840 yards, registered a 71.4 pass completion percentage, 94.5 QB rating, and compiled 33 touchdowns and three interceptions in nine games this season.

The Detroit Lions’ playoff hopes have all but completely slipped away as there 3-6-1 record puts them far behind the two NFC wild card spots heading into the final stretch of the season.

If there is any hope of them making a final push, they are going to need to get their starting quarterback Matthew Stafford back in the lineup. The 31-year old is dealing with a nagging back injury and hasn’t played since the team’s 31-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders on November 3rd.

Despite talks about him being shut down for the remainder of the season, Stafford reiterated that he is doing everything he can to get back on the field to help the team.

“I just know the work that I put into every season and I want to get as many chances as a I can to play with these guys as I possibly can” said Stafford.

“That’s really just how I think about it. If I’m healthy enough to go play, I’m going to go play.”

The 2009 first overall pick is in his 11th season with the franchise. He has recorded 187 pass completions for 2499 passing yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions in eight games this season.
