Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been injured since the spring, unable to take part in much of the Crimson Tide's activities. Here's the latest on his status.

Tagovailoa appears to be recovering well. He was reportedly back throwing at a private QB camp.

CBS Sports reports that Tagovailoa looked fine.

"Rising sophomore Tua Tagovailoa -- the hero of the 26-23 overtime win over Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship in January -- appeared fine at the "QB Retreat," which is an offseason quarterback camp hosted by private coach Steve Clarkson. He missed the majority of spring practice with a broken finger suffered in the first practice of the season," CBS Sports reports.

Alabama is expected to have one of the most-heated quarterback competitions in the country this fall, but it was unable to really take place in the spring due to Tagovailoa's injury.

We're back with it now, though. It should be a good one.

Alabama is set to open its 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Louisville.
