LSU head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed Wednesday evening that star running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire did indeed sustain an injury during Tuesday’s practice.

Orgeron addressed the media during a press conference mainly to discuss LSU’s 2020 recruiting class. After discussing the start of the Early Signing Period, Orgeron was asked about the reported injury to Edwards-Helaire.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Clyde did get hurt yesterday. I don’t know the extent of his injury,” Coach O said. “He went to get some tests today and we’re gonna know a little bit more toward the end of the week. But he did not practice today. He could not practice.”

One of the initial reports called it a non-contact injury for Edwards-Helaire. It was also reported to be an injury to his hamstring. There are still 10 days to go before the Peach Bowl Semifinal vs Oklahoma, but the status of the star running back is definitely worrisome.

Edwards-Helaire leads LSU with 1,290 yards rushing. The second-leading rusher for the Tigers is QB Joe Burrow at 289 yards. Tyrion Davis-Prince (270 yards) and John Emery Jr. (182 yards) are the only other LSU players with more than 100 yards on the ground.
