    Top NFL quarterback prospect and Alabama star Tua Tagovailoa will miss the remainder of the season due to a dislocated hip.

    Tagovailoa was taken off on a cart during Alabama's 38-7 win against Mississippi State on Saturday, after he was sacked by two defenders late in the second quarter.

    The 21-year-old – who along with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is in contention to be taken with the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft – will now sit out the rest of the campaign.

    "Tua Tagovailoa sustained a right hip dislocation that was immediately reduced at the stadium," Crimson Tide team surgeon Lyle Cain said in a statement.

    "He is undergoing further testing to determine the best course of treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery but will miss the remainder of the season."

    Tagovailoa had completed 14 of his 18 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns prior to the injury.

    The Samoan-American inspired Alabama to glory in January 2018, throwing three touchdowns after replacing Jalen Hurts as they beat Georgia 26-23 in overtime in the National Championship game.

    Alabama returned to the same stage with Tagovailoa under center last season but lost 44-16 to Clemson.

    Saturday's game marked Tagovailoa's second since returning from ankle surgery. He made his comeback last week as Alabama lost 46-41 to Burrow and LSU at home.

    Alabama head coach Nick Saban added: "Godspeed to him and his entire family. And our thoughts and prayers are with him and hope this is not so serious that it has any long-term effects on his future."

  • Patriots without Chung for Eagles clash Patriots without Chung for Eagles clash

    New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung has been ruled out of the clash with rivals the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL Super Bowl champions announced.

    Chung will miss Sunday's showdown in Philadelphia due to two injuries (heel and chest), after the 32-year-old had initially been listed as questionable.

    A three-time Super Bowl champion, Chung – who spent a year with the Eagles in 2013 – was limited all week in practice.

    Rookie running back Damien Harris will also miss the road game against the Eagles (5-4) because of a hamstring problem.

    The Patriots (8-1) are looking to bounce back from a loss to the Baltimore Ravens prior to their bye week.

     

     

     

  • English leads Mayakoba, Henley penalised with eight-stroke penalty English leads Mayakoba, Henley penalised with eight-stroke penalty

    Harris English claimed a one-stroke lead following the second round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

    English used a seven-under-par 64 to move top of the leaderboard in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on Saturday.

    The PGA Tour tournament has been pushed back after heavy rain led to Thursday's opening round being washed out.

    English – seeking his third Tour victory and first since winning the 2013 Mayakoba Golf Classic when it was known as OHL Classic at Mayakoba – had a bogey-free day.

    The 30-year-old holed seven birdies as he improved to 13 under at the halfway stage, ahead of fellow American Vaughn Taylor (66).

    Brandon Todd's second-round 66 left him two shots off the pace, while Danny Lee (70), Adam Long (69) and Robby Shelton (66) are a stroke further back heading into the third round.

    Meanwhile, Russell Henley missed the cut in bizarre circumstances at El Camaleon Golf Club, where he violated the PGA Tour's One Ball Rule.

    Henley was penalised eight shots after using a different type of golf ball than the one he started the second round with.

    The three-time Tour champion looked to have carded a two-under 69, until Henley realised he had inadvertently used a different ball during the round as he signed balls to give away.

    "It was a small dash, a different way it was marked that would have been easy to overlook," said TOUR Rules Official Brad Fabel. "He came to us and said he didn't know how it had gotten in his bag."
