Heisman contender Leonard Fournette may not play for LSU in a pivotal SEC matchup against No. 18 Florida on Saturday.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron says “it doesn’t look like” running back Leonard Fournette will play Saturday against No. 18 Florida.
Fournette, who has been nursing a left ankle injury since the preseason, didn’t practice Monday or Tuesday. Fournette has missed two games this season, including last Saturday’s victory over Missouri.
Orgeron, speaking during a Southeastern Conference coaches’ conference call Wednesday, says LSU will play the Gators without starting right guard Will Clapp, who injured his shoulder last weekend, and likely without tight end Foster Moreau, whose ailment is undisclosed.
Earlier this week, Orgeron said he expected right tackle Toby Weathersby, who has an ankle injury, to be “out for a little bit.”
Orgeron says the offensive line is experimenting with players at various spots.
