Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has no timetable for return after successful surgery on his ankle injury.

Head coach Nick Saban told reporters the expectation is Tagovailoa will not be able to put weight on the ankle for "several days" and the team is hopeful he will be able to start rehabilitation within 10 days, per Charlie Potter of

"These things are unpredictable," Saban added.
