LSU coach Ed Orgeron has often lamented the fact that personnel deficiencies have kept his offense from using more two tight end formations, one of the supposed hallmarks of Steve Ensminger’s offense.
Don’t expect that to be remedied any time soon.
Tight end Thaddeus Moss, who has missed LSU’s first seven games with a “lingering” injury, isn’t likely to play at all this season, Orgeron said on his call-in radio show Wednesday night.
“I don’t think Thaddeus is going to play this year,” Orgeron said. “He isn’t completely healthy.”
LSU will explore a medical redshirt for Moss, Orgeron said, but that’s no sure thing. Moss used an NCAA-redshirt season last year after transferring from North Carolina State.
The son of Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss, Thaddeus was expected to be a match-up tight end — or “move tight end” — for LSU this season, but he’s been unable to get on the field. Orgeron has twice proclaimed him ready to debut only for Moss to have a setback and no suit on on game day.
