Running low on Coach O: LSU doesn't have enough healthy players for full practice
Suiting up healthy players is a problem at LSU.
According to head coach Ed Ogeron the lack of numbers in uniform for practice is causing issues. Ogeron said the team wasn’t even able to hold a full practice on Wednesday.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron: "We don't have enough players to do the Tiger Bowl scrimmage tomorrow, and we don't have enough players healthy enough to have a full practice today."
The Tigers travel to Tuscaloosa on Nov. 6 to take on No. 3 #Alabama.

LSU is currently on a bye before heading east to face No. 3 Alabama in Week 10.
The injuries have been piling up for the Tigers in what has been a disappointing, and tumultuous season. Since winning the national championship in 2019, Ogeron and the Tigers are just 9-9, including a fourth-place finish in the division last season.
Projected Week 1 starting quarterback Myles Brennan suffered an arm injury in camp and hasn’t taken the field in 2021. Wide receiver Kayshon Boutte and defensive backs Eli Ricks and Derek Stingley are also injured — both have been ruled out for the remainder of the 2021 season.
The announcement that Ogeron would not return to LSU in 2022 has left speculation and anticipation about a replacement, and the recruiting and retention efforts have been clearly impacted.
