Running back Derrius Guice and defensive end Rashard Lawrence were both absent from the media viewing portion of practice Wednesday.
LSU coach Ed Orgeron said both starts are considered “questionable” to play on Saturday night against Troy earlier in the day. The coach did not elaborate beyond that on the status of either player during his stint on the SEC Coaches Teleconference.
Orgeron ruled Lawrence out to play against the Trojans earlier this week, and he hasn’t been spotted at any of the three media viewing portions of practice. He returned from a two-game absence from an ankle injury only to injure the other ankle against Syracuse.
Guice has been dealing with an undisclosed injury since the Mississippi State game. He was ruled out for Syracuse only to be cleared and play in a limited role. He registered just eight carries against the Orange.
Right tackle Toby Weathersby was also absent from practice Wednesday. Adrian Magee was working in his place with the first-team offensive line during the media viewing portion of practice Wednesday.
Outside linebacker Corey Thompson, safety John Battle, cornerback Kevin Toliver and nose tackle Ed Alexander all practiced in gold non-contact jerseys Wednesday.
