While there's no doubt that Tua Tagovailoa is one of the best quarterbacks in college football, the Alabama star has dealt with a handful of injuries thus far in his career.

Last year, the dual-threat quarterback battled a knee injury that plagued him throughout the regular season. It can be argued that Tagovailoa was the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy before his injuries slowed him down.

Tagovailoa is on pace to be a first-round pick in next year's NFL Draft. However, scouts will need to see him remain healthy in his junior season.

Unfortunately for Tagovailoa, it turns out that he's already dealing with an injury. Due to a little pain in his hamstring, he'll have to miss this year's Manning Passing Academy.

The event, hosted by the famous quarterback family, began on Thursday and runs through this weekend.

It sounds more like a precautionary move than a serious injury for Tagovailoa.

Obviously Alabama has to have some level of concern over this development. The program's title hopes rides on the health of its quarterback.

Tagovailoa has dealt with injuries to his ankle, knee, hand and hamstring over the course of his career with the Crimson Tide.

Nonetheless, it's encouraging to know that Tagovailoa will stay out of harm's way and avoid risking further injury at the Manning Passing Academy.
