LSU got one of its two missing tackles back at practice on Wednesday, but another potential starter was spotted in a yellow non-contact jersey.
Adrian Magee logged his first padded practice since going down with an apparent knee injury during the season-opener against Miami. Magee, labeled as questionable by LSU coach Ed Orgeron earlier in the day, was a full participant.
Getting Magee back is an obvious plus as LSU was without starting left tackle Saahdiq Charles for the third consecutive media viewing portion of practice. Charles also didn’t play against Louisiana Tech due to an undisclosed injury.
Badara Traore, who started in Charles’ place on Saturday, practiced in a yellow non-contact jersey on Wednesday. He mostly stood around and observed while the rest of the linemen went through any drills that involved physical contact.
For what it’s worth, Magee worked at left tackle with the first-team offensive line when LSU lined up as a five-man group.
OBSERVATIONS AND VIDEO
- Wide receiver Jonathan Giles was back at practice as a full participant on Wednesday. He was absent for an undisclosed reason on Tuesday.
- Backup quarterback Myles Brennan appeared to be a full participant on Wednesday. He was present at Tuesday’s practice, but he didn’t have pads on and only stood off to the side while the media were allowed in for individual drills.
- LSU’s defensive backs were working on tracking down throws into the corner of the end zone ahead of a matchup with Ole Miss and its vertical passing game. Video below.
I’d describe this drill as #LsU safeties working on high pointing arm punts
I like that there’s a walk-on QB there to fake a handoff, but the ball gets shot out of a jugs machine pic.twitter.com/eWgKywIHqV
