There were far fewer players sporting yellow non-contact jerseys at LSU practice on Tuesday afternoon.
Some of that can be attributed to a handful of defenders returning to full participation, but the more obviously implication was that half of the field for LSU’s four-way quarterback competition were missing.
Quarterbacks Justin McMillan and Lowell Narcisse were absent from the media viewing portion of practice Tuesday. No explanation was provided for why the two signal callers weren’t taking part in individual drills. Joe Burrow and Myles Brennan were the only scholarship quarterbacks at practice.

On the health front, cornerbacks Greedy Williams and Minnie Netherly and linebacker Patrick Queen were full participants after practicing in yellow on Monday. Fullback Tory Carter was still in yellow but participated in individual drills.
Starting defensive ends Rashard Lawrence and Glen Logan were absent from the media viewing portion of practice, as was safety Eric Monroe. Lawrence and Monroe were also absent from Monday’s practice. Neil Farrell and Breiden Fehoko were the first two defensive linemen to go during individual drills.
LSU coach Ed Orgeron is scheduled to meet with reporters on Wednesday night following practice.
Other absences on offense: OL Chasen Hines and Badara Traore, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, WR Justin Jefferson and Racey McMath, TE Thaddeus Moss
- David Ducre was working with the tight ends during individual drills, which appeared to be a new wrinkle.
- Carter was working with the running backs.
