Tua Tagovailoa‘s trip to Houston and ensuing surgery were successful, according to Alabama’s team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain.

Cain released his third statement of the weekend Monday morning after Tagovailoa’s surgery.

“Tua underwent successful surgery on his right hip Monday morning in Houston,” the statement read. “The procedure went as planned, and he is resting comfortably. Tua’s prognosis is excellent, and we expect him to make a full recovery. He will return to Tuscaloosa in the next several days to begin his rehab.”

Dr. Cain, of the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Clinic, clarified why Tagovailoa was going to Houston for surgery in a Sunday evening statement.

“For the past 24 hours our medical team has consulted with multiple orthopedic experts across the country, who specialize in hip injuries and surgeries,” the statement read. “Based on that research, Tua is being flown to Houston tonight to be evaluated and is scheduled to have hip surgery Monday. As previously stated, we anticipate a full recovery. The main focus has been, and will remain, on Tua, his family, and making sure we are providing them the best medical care possible.”
