Saban predicted "a full and speedy recovery" for Tagovailoa. He was hurt in the second quarter of Alabama's 35-13 win over Tennessee. No. 1 Alabama has an open date before facing No. 2 LSU on Nov. 9. Tagovailoa promised teammates he'd be back for that game.
He played in the playoff semifinal game against Oklahoma 28 days after the injury last season.
