Tua Tagovailoa should return to health by April and plans to throw in front of NFL teams before the draft later that month, his agent told Mike Rodak of AL.com.

The former Alabama quarterback is expected to make 60-80 throws during a workout that will last about 40 minutes, agent Leigh Steinberg said.

Tagovailoa continues to recover from November hip surgery, and his health could be a determining factor in how early he's drafted. He was in contention to go first overall before suffering a dislocated hip and associated fracture in a game against Mississippi State.

The former Heisman Trophy finalist is scheduled to attend the NFL Scouting Combine in February but will be limited to interviews with teams.

When he declared for the draft on Jan. 6, Tagovailoa said he was optimistic he'd be able to play during the 2020 season.

The native Hawaiian threw 87 touchdowns against 11 interceptions in parts of three seasons with the Crimson Tide.
