WATCH: Tua Tagovailoa already throwing, one week after breaking finger in throwing hand

During the first spring practice of the season, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa broke a finger in his throwing hand that required surgery. One week later, the promising sophomore is already throwing balls during practice.

Chris Renkel of CBS 42 shared the following video showing Tagovailoa on the practice field Tuesday.

This is obviously tremendous news, both for Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide.

Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurt are going to be engaged in a fierce quarterback competition throughout the offseason, and it’s likely both will end up playing plenty in 2018. Just don’t ask Nick Saban about any of that, unless you like having your head bitten off by the old ball coach.
