HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - All eyes ahead of the NFL combine we’re on a player who won’t participate this week.

During the press conference ahead of the NFL Combine on Tuesday, former Heisman runner-up and Alabama superstar quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said that his medical clearance from doctors will come on March 9.
