– Tua Tagovailoa continues to be a full participant in the media viewing period, continuing the streak from Monday and Tuesday. Saban is adamant Tagovailoa remains a game-time decision, repeating such on the SEC teleconference Wednesday morning.

“I’m not saying he’s going to be back playing in six weeks, I’m just saying I know it will be six weeks before we can even start back to things,” Saban said at the time.
