NFL Notes: Tua Tagovailoa, Draft, Tom Coughlin

Tua Tagovailoa

  • According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, people around Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa (dislocated hip) have praised his speedy recovery.
  • Garafolo says Tagovailoa is training twice a day and the workouts are going well enough that he should be able to throw for teams in April. 
  • Garafolo fully expects Tagovailoa to be a top-10 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, despite the hip concerns. 


  • Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy confirmed on Twitter that LSU QB Joe Burrow will not participate in this year’s game. 
  • Alex Marvez reports that Texas Tech FB LB Jordyn Brooks said he underwent shoulder surgery in December and requires 4-6 months to recover. According to Marvez, Brooks is considered a first-round prospect for the 2020 NFL Draft and is now focused on “improving mental aspects of his game” and coverage concepts while rehabbing. 

Tom Coughlin

Former Jaguars executive Tom Coughlin said he would still like to be “involved in the game” and continue working in the NFL. 

“I love the game,” Coughlin said in an interview with Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio, via Pro Football Talk. “I love the people involved in the game. And to continue to be involved in some capacity would be a very good thing for me, because I need to be active, I need to be busy. I want to be busy. So the routine is very good for me. It’s been that way for a lot of years. And we’ll just see what prevails.”

Coughlin added that “a lot of factors” were considered in his dismissal from Jacksonville.

There’s a lot of factors involved,” Coughlin. “Obviously, there’s no excuses. But injuries take their play. Blake Bortles had some issues in 2018, and then after that obviously we got into the new quarterback situation and so on and so forth.”
