Fox News Flash top headlines for November 16 are here. With two more touchdown passes against Mississippi State, Tagovailoa has 33 on the season along with 2,840 yards passing.

Tagovailoa was unable to put any weight on the right side of his body after injuring his right hip.

Media members, including several who played college football, wondered why Tagovailoa was still in the game, or how the injury would affect Alabama's playoff hopes. He was reportedly "screaming in pain" when being removed from the cart in the locker room area, according to ESPN sideline reporter Molly McGrath.

Fourth-ranked Alabama was leading 35-7 with 3:01 left in the first half when Tagovailoa, who had surgery on a sprained right ankle almost a month ago, was injured. Alabama (8-1, 5-1 SEC, No. 4 CFP) had a week off, Tagovailoa played last week in a loss to LSU. He was replaced by redshirt sophomore Mac Jones.

At halftime, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said that Tagovailoa has a right hip injury. "They took him in to look at him so we'll see what's happening".

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field in the second quarter with the Crimson Tide winning 35-7 against Mississipi State on Saturday.
