LSU's Ed Orgeron is very confident that Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will be ready to go on November 9 vs. LSU, saying that the Tigers are preparing for him to play.

"No doubt," Orgeron said on the SEC Coaches Teleconference Wednesday. "We're preparing for him to play and I think that he will play."

"Knowing the competitor that he is, he's going to be in that game."
Tagovailoa left the Tennessee game on October 19 after suffering a high ankle sprain and had surgery the following day.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban also spoke on the Teleconference Wednesday and said that Tagovailoa will practice on Wednesday for the first time since having surgery and will be a game-time decision for the LSU game based on how he progresses in practice.

Of course he's playing. Nick Saban could declare the morning of the game that he's not able to play and I guarantee he's still running out there and playing.
