Safety Grant Delpit to have shoulder surgery

Safety Grant Delpit will undergo surgery to repair a shoulder injury sustained in LSU’s Spring Game, the sophomore announced on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Delpit leaped to break up a deep pass Saturday and left the game after landing hard on the Tiger Stadium turf. Trainers attended to him for a while before he got up and headed straight for the locker room while holding his shoulder.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron confirmed it was a shoulder injury after the game but didn’t have any additional details. Delpit has been diagnosed with a broken left collarbone, according to a source.

Generally speaking, players can return to action within two-to-three months after surgery to repair a broken collarbone. That timeline would allow LSU to get its starting safety back in time for fall camp.
