LSU wide receiver Travin Dural will play in Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe, head coach Les Miles told reporters Wednesday.

Dural was involved in a car accident early Sunday after LSU's game against Sam Houston State last weekend and received a laceration to his head that required stitches. He wasn't able to practice Monday and Tuesday because he couldn't wear a helmet as a result of the stitches.

Miles said Dural returned to practice Wednesday and was not limited by the injury.

Dural's accident occurred when he attempted to turn left without using an indicator and was struck by another vehicle driving the opposite direction. No citations were reportedly issued.

Dural, a sophomore, is the Tigers' leading receiver so far, catching six passes for 291 yards and four touchdowns through two games.
