A physical battle with Auburn has led to a lengthier injury report than normal for LSU, but the Tigers appear to be getting healthier as the week goes on.
Cornerback Kristian Fulton is expected to play against Louisiana Tech despite going down with an injury during the Auburn game, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said during his call-in radio show on Wednesday night.
Fulton practiced in a yellow non-contact jersey during the media viewing portion of practice on Wednesday. That represented a step in the right direction after Fulton did not participate on Tuesday.
Staying on the injury front, both defensive end Glen Logan and linebacker Ray Thornton were full participants in practice Wednesday. Both starting defenders wore yellow non-contact jerseys on Tuesday after being injured in the Auburn game.
The lone notable absence from practice on Wednesday was left tackle Saahdiq Charles, who was also absent on Monday but logged a full practice on Tuesday in between.
Here’s some other notable observations/notes from either Wednesday’s practice or Orgeron’s radio show:
- The coach hinted that LSU may be looking to try new players in the return game in order to create a spark. Jonathan Giles has handled punt return duties to this point while Clyde Edwards-Helaire has returned kickoffs.
- Orgeron was complementary of Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz and the talent his staff has amassed on both sides of the ball. “There’s several guys on their football team I’d like to have,” Orgeron said. He mentioned cornerback Amik Robertson and defensive lineman Jaylon Ferguson as specific guys LSU missed on in recruiting.
- Tight end Thaddeus Moss again was a full participant Wednesday after logging his first padded practice in weeks on Tuesday. Orgeron said earlier in the day that Moss was in line to make his LSU debut against Louisiana Tech.
