On Saturday night, Tua Tagovailoa led the Alabama Crimson Tide to an impressive win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. The Tide won 45-34, but the story after the game was Tua Tagovailoa's comments about the health of his ankle.

In a short interview after the game, Tagovailoa revealed his ankle is still "uncertain" and he was later seen with a boot on to protect his foot/ankle area.

Heading into the Tide's game against Clemson on Monday night, Tagovailoa provided yet another update about his injury. He said his ankle is "improving" but he's still undergoing treatment as Alabama gears up for the title game.

Despite saying his ankle was "uncertain" in the game against Oklahoma, Tua completed 24-of-27 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns against a porous Oklahoma defense.

He'll face a much stiffer test against Clemson's defense that just held Notre Dame to three points.

Alabama and Clemson kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN on Monday night.
