Ed Orgeron updates the health of his banged-up offensive line

September 26, 2018 - 11:09 am


Asked about the health of his offensive line as a whole, LSU coach Ed Orgeron needed just two words to sum up the state of things.

“It’s questionable,” the coach responded on the Southeastern Coaches Teleconference on Wednesday morning.

LSU will host Ole Miss on Saturday night without left guard Garrett Brumfield, who has already been ruled out for at least this week with a knee injury.

Offensive tackles Saahdiq Charles and Adrian Magee remain questionable to play, Orgeron said. Charles hasn’t practiced this week after sitting out the Louisiana Tech game with an undisclosed injury and Magee has yet to practice in pads since injuring his leg in the season-opener against Miami.

“Nothing has changed since Monday,” Orgeron said. “I’ll know more toward the end of the week on both of those guys.”

LSU will probably start true freshman Chasen Hines at left guard for as long as Brumfield’s out while Badara Traore would likely start again at left tackle if neither Charles nor Magee can play.

This will be the fifth different offensive line combination for LSU in as many weeks.
