Fall Camp Report: Day Seven

A trio of LSU defenders returned to practice, albeit it in yellow non-contact jerseys, but a starting defensive lineman was absent from the media viewing portion of practice on Monday afternoon.

Cornerbacks Greedy Williams and Mannie Netherly and linebacker Patrick Queen practiced in yellow Monday after sitting out the first scrimmage of camp on Saturday. Fullback Tory Carter was also in yellow.

Defensive end Rashard Lawrence was absent up front for unknown reasons. Glen Logan and Neil Farrell were the first-team defensive ends when LSU did drills in a three-man front. Nose tackles Ed Alexander and Tyler Shelvin, who both missed time last week, both practiced in full.

Safety Eric Monroe continued to be absent after not scrimmaging on Saturday. It is unclear what has kept him out, but he hasn’t been spotted at the media viewing portion of practice since the middle of last week.

QUARTERBACKS SPLIT

LSU split up its quarterbacks into two groups of maximize reps during individual drills, as LSU coach Ed Orgeron has repeatedly said they planned to do.

Joe Burrow and Justin McMillan threw with the wide receivers under the supervision of offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger and senior assistant Jerry Sullivan. Per usual, Sullivan grilled his receivers about precise footwork for each given route.

Meanwhile, Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse were throwing with the running backs and tight ends. Here’s a video of some wheel routes, which are always a crowd pleaser.

RUSH HOUR

Most of the front seven spent the individual drill portion of practice working on pass rush moves and strip sacks. Creating pressure and turnovers have been a major emphasis to this point in fall camp, according to players.

Notable: The defensive line and outside linebackers continued to work on various fronts and rush combinations as a group. They then separated into lineman and linebackers to run through individual drills.
