    ďI watched him in practice yesterday,Ē Danielson said. "He isnít 100 percent. I donít care what Alabama says. I donít care what Tua says. I watched him. He doesnít have that spring in his step. Itís not natural.

But in the event the information about Tua not being close to 100% is true. After watching Jones play quarterback and seeing how our OL stepped up for the team. I'm not that worried. I think we can beat them with Jones behind center. I really do.
    Went and read Gary's comments and gave a chuckle. Here is what he said:

    “I watched him in practice yesterday,” Danielson said. "He isn’t 100 percent. I don’t care what Alabama says. I don’t care what Tua says. I watched him. He doesn’t have that spring in his step. It’s not natural.


    "He’s OK. I’d be playing if I was him. I know that, but he’s not the Tua that started the season. He’s not as nimble as before. How do those body blows - or ankle blows - set up the football game in the third and fourth quarters.


    “I wonder if anyone’s touched his ankle, let alone hit his ankle the way he’s going to get in this football game.”
    Yes, Gary, Alabama players have been pounding on Tua's ankles in practice.

    He has no spring in his step. He is not as nimble. What a doofus thing to say. Of course he isn't out there bouncing around. He wants to continue to get stronger, not risk a re-injury in practice.

    This is Gary being Gary - looking for something new to say when silence would be so much better. Gary doesn't understand the art of shut the hell up.

    Hmm, leading tackler no longer with the team, one of their best corner's coming off injury, not sure if he'll be 100%. Now one of their OL who they've depended on is now out. At what point does attrition start impacting them?

    I've only read/heard positive things about Tua all week.

    Along the lines of 'He's 90-95% healthy if not 100% and looks way further along that he did prior to Oklahoma last year.'

    I personally have the same opinion that this injury wasn't even remotely as bad as the one from the SECCG vs UGA.

    They probably did the smart thing here and just did the surgery to 'Future Proof' Tua for the rest of his season and career.

    He's a really fast healer and now both his ankles will be extra durable.

    I'm so freaking tried of seeing fellow fans here and elsewhere refer to Tua as 'Fragile'.

    Jalen had the exact same injury last year against UT and was out for 4 weeks until the Citadel Game. Would anyone consider Jalen...Fragile??

    QB's are more prone to lower body injuries now because defenders are going low to avoid head contact which could result in Targeting and Roughing the QB.

    The only way to try and avoid it is to throw the ball away 100% of the time and even then a Defender could make a bang bang play or commit a late hit.

    Plus I mean good lord we've had a ridiculous amount of LB injuries for years now.... are ALL those guys Fragile too??? Because most of them missed several games if not entire seasons.

    Tua has missed ONE Qtr against UGA in 2018 and 1.5 Games in 2019.... that's IT.

    gary at the seccg last year. "remember, jalen is not a 100% runner right now". next play, jalen rips off a long run outrunning the defense to covert a 3rd down.
