Last weekend, the Alabama Crimson Tide were dealt a crucial blow to their team as Tua Tagovailoa went down with a dislocated hip. We're only a week removed from that injury, but the southpaw signal-caller is already back in Tuscaloosa.

Alabama has a non-conference matchup today with Western Carolina. It should be a fairly easy test for Nick Saban's squad.

Before the Crimson Tide take the field against the Catamounts this afternoon, Tagovailoa went on social media to address the fans that will be present for the school's senior day.

Tagovailoa shared the following message on his Twitter account:

"Back in ttown! Thank you all for the prayers and support! Join us tomorrow in support of our seniors and our last home game of the season!!! Roll Tide"

Clearly, the superstar quarterback will not let his injury affect his mindset this season.

Even though Alabama will have to battle the rest of the year without him, Tagovailoa plans on supporting his teammates the rest of the way.

Kickoff is at 12 p.m. ET from Bryant-Denny Stadium.

We'll get to see how Mac Jones looks as the full-time starter before Alabama takes on Auburn next Saturday in the Iron Bowl.

As for Tagovailoa, it'll be very interesting to see if he declares for the 2020 NFL Draft or stays in school for his senior year.
