Tua, pondering his immediate future, tells Herbstreit, “You’ve got to change and be thinking as a businessman. You’ve got to make business decisions.”
At least he doesn’t have to make a business decision about missing the bowl game.

Hobble away from that free Bammer education??
I hope I’m wrong for his sake but Tua’s career is over. I’ve represented multiple clients who suffered the same injury, a fracture dislocation of the acetabulum (hip socket), and they all end up with a total hip replacement. This is the same injury that ended Bo Jackson’s career.

My doctor father-in-law said the exact same thing when the news broke. Medicine has obviously progressed since Bo went down, but he’ll need “Chubb”-like resolve and work-ethic to have any hope.
I’m not sure you can work your way back from this injury. I do wish the kid gets well enough to get drafted/get paid. But I doubt he ever plays significantly again.
