The panic on the Internet was immediate when the latest history of the injury appeared at the end of June.
Tua Tagovailoa was supposed to attend the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana, but he never went on a journey. Problem? His hamstring tendon.
After the knee season and then the troubles with the ankle, the immediate reaction of Alabama's followers was tense.
A few weeks later, the Heisman runner said he was healthy at SEC Media Days.
"Well, that's all, I had a tight tendon, and our trainers did not want me to go because they felt that if I finished doing something grueling, maybe it would be better or I could get it out," Tagovailoa said Wednesday in Hoover. "So they did not take the risk, so they wanted me to be back at university and undergo treatment."
Tagovailoa was not aware that the company expressed its health in this last round.
"Thank you for caring for me," he said.
Because the Crimson Tide is getting ready to start the practice, the hamstring tendon is not a problem.
"I would say I am 100 percent," said Tagovailoa. "I would say I'm better than when I came here. I feel much better. "
Alabama opens the season August 31 with Duke in Atlanta.
