How about some actual news on Tell-the-Truth Monday?
Tight end Jamal Pettigrew returned to practice Monday for the first time since suffering a serious knee injury this summer. Pettirgrew underwent surgery in August, and he returned to the practice field three months later.
The 6-foot-7, 240-pound sophomore would have been part of the plan for LSU this season were it not for the knee injury. LSU coach Ed Orgeron has often remarked that missing Pettigrew and Thaddeus Moss has kept LSU from deploying more two-tight personnel groupings this season.
Pettigrew caught one pass for 18 yards last season after redshirting as a true freshman in 2016. He won’t be able to play in the regular-season finale against Texas A&M, obviously, but there’s a chance he could return for the bowl game.
