Wide receivers Henry Ruggs III and DeVonta Smith suffered apparent leg injuries. Smith didn’t return in the second half after a 57-yard catch. Ruggs appeared to have his right leg twisted by a Missouri defender on a tackle and walked to the locker room, but returned to the game.
Smith pulled a muscle, Saban said, and could be questionable against Tennessee.
Backup Jalen Hurts, who started the past two years, replaced Tagovailoa.
