Wear­ing a boot

Tulsa World - - Sports -

Tago­v­ailoa re­cently had a pro­ce­dure on his an­kle and was rid­ing a scooter and wear­ing a boot while tak­ing part in me­dia obli­ga­tions.

He joked that he would look into color co­or­di­na­tion when dress­ing up for Satur­day's cer­e­mony.

“They are go­ing to have to paint this,” Tago­v­ailoa said.

The quar­ter­back talked about his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion process, which in­cluded the pres­ence of Alabama's head ath­letic trainer Jeff Allen this week­end.

“If we're not talk­ing to me­dia, if I'm not with the Heis­man com­mit­tee, any chance I've got to go back to my room, Jeff's with me all the time,” Tago­v­ailoa said. “It's some­thing I don't like, but I'm very ap­pre­cia­tive of it. If it's go­ing to get me a lot bet­ter quicker, I'm open to it.”
