Things could be looking up for LSU’s offense as it prepares for the Peach Bowl matchup against Oklahoma, now less than a week away.

Last week, running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a hamstring injury during team drills and was considered questionable for Saturday’s game against Oklahoma. On Monday, head coach Ed Orgeron issued an update on the running back’s status, and it sounds a bit more hopeful.

Orgeron told reporters that Edwards-Helaire is a “little bit better” than he was last week, and is no longer using crutches or a scooter. There’s a chance that the running back gets on the field in the Peach Bowl, but Orgeron didn’t confirm anything.

Edwards-Helaire is in a little better shape than what Orgeron expected.

This season, Edwards-Helaire rushed for 1,290 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also caught 50 passes for 399 yards and a score.

LSU enters the Peach Bowl 13-0 while Oklahoma is 12-1.
