Tagovailoa participates in throwing drills after injuring finger

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For all Alabama football fans out there, it's time to let out that sigh of relief as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who injured his index finger on his throwing hand last week, is back to throwing the football during Spring practice.

The former Saint Louis School star and current college football sensation gave Alabama fans quite a scare last week during practice when he injured his finger, but it seems like he's on the road to recovery after participating in quarterback and throwing drills Tuesday morning in Tuscaloosa.

Tagovailoa, who will be a sophomore during this coming season, entered the spring in a quarterback competition with incumbent starter Jalen Hurts, a junior.

The Hawaii native led Alabama to a second-half comeback in the NCAA National Championship against Georgia after Hurts was benched by Saban at halftime.
