TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - The parents of Tua Tagovailoa have released a statement following their son’s successful surgery Monday.

Galu and Diane Tagovailoa expressed their appreciation in the statement, which was released through Alabama Athletics. The full statement reads:

“We would like to thank all of the Alabama family and everyone across the world for the prayers and outpouring of love and support for our son and our family. We felt the unceasing prayer, and words can’t express how overwhelming and uplifting that has been for us. We have total faith in God’s plan for Tua, and we know his plan is never wrong. God’s grace, mercy, love and faithfulness in our lives has never been more evident, despite this setback. The care and support Tua and our family has received is nothing short of amazing, and we can’t express our appreciation enough for Dr. Cain, Jeff Allen, Coach Saban, Tua’s teammates, the Alabama Athletics department, our pastors and all of the doctors and nurses that have done such an outstanding job of taking care of Tua. God Bless and Roll Tide!”

Tua suffered a season-ending hip injury last weekend against Mississippi State.
