Tua Tagovailoa replaced by Jalen Hurts in SEC championship game after injury

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a right ankle injury in the fourth quarter of the the SEC championship game against Georgia.

On the play he was injured, Tagovailoa released a pass and Crimson Tide left tackle Jonah Williams had his leg crumble Tagovailoa's right ankle – turning it into the turf. 

'Bama backup QB Jalen Hurts replaced Tagovailoa with the Crimson Tide trailing 28-21 midway through the fourth quarter. Ironically, Tagovailoa relieved Hurts in the College Football National Championship game against Georgia last season, providing heroics for a national title that eventually led him to beat out Hurts for the starting gig this season. 

Before leaving the game, Tagovailoa was 10-of-25 for 164 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Hurts lifted the Crimson Tide into a 35-28 lead with 1:04 to go with two fourth-quarter touchdowns – a 10-yard pass to Jerry Jeudy and a 15-yard run.
