The College Football Playoff is just four days away, and fans across the country are all wondering whether Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's ankle will be healed enough for him to play against Oklahoma. Well, he certainly thinks it is.

Tagovailoa, speaking at an Orange Bowl press conference on Christmas Eve, said he's a "full send" for the contest. He said he was limited for the first few practices, but that's it.

Tagovailoa was asked if Alabama would have the full playbook available, given his injury.

Here's the quote:

"It's a full send. It's a full send. We're running all the plays that we normally run. And if I wasn't able to run some of the plays, then I don't think I should be out there. So, I think it's a full send."

Alabama, of course, has an incredibly talented backup if Tagovailoa can't go. Former starter Jalen Hurts led the Crimson Tide to a come-from-behind victory against Georgia earlier this month.

It'll be interesting to see if Tagovailoa is limited at all. Alabama is going to need to score against Oklahoma - which presents one of the most dynamic offenses in college football.
