Tua will not be playing in A-Day. Throwing hand was put in a full cast after unexpected setbacks in the healing process. Won't effect QB decision as that wouldn't have come until Fall camp.
Battle between Jones and Hurts will be interesting. I have heard good things about Mac Jones...
When factoring out the injury, Tua is pretty much the defacto starter (Everyone with insider info has said so). Even though Jalen is the incumbent, he's not the favorite even within the program based on everything I've heard.
I could see this scenario becoming very likely and I wouldn't be opposed to it as our first 3 games are incredibly easy. I just hope he doesn't trot the wrong QB out into a trap game, much like 2015 Ole Miss. A&M has the feeling of being a trap game under Jimbo.You have to watch these "insiders". Everyone wants to be one. There are some people who truly have a peek on the inside, but that list is much, much smaller than the list of people who call themselves insiders.
Yes, Tua will "likely" be the starter, but Coach Saban is fiercely loyal to his veteran players and Hurts will have every opportunity to keep his job. I would not be shocked to see them play both QB's through the first 2-3 games.
