LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (leg) rushed for 71 yards on 20 carries in Saturday's 27-23 win over Auburn.
Guice has been limited for stretches this season by a pesky leg injury, but while he didn't exactly blow up on Saturday -- his long run went for 15 yards -- it was an incredibly encouraging sign that LSU felt comfortable enough with his health to give him 21 carries. Those 21 totes of the rock are the most he has seen since the season-opener. He figures to be able to find room to work against Ole Miss next weekend unless he suffers a setback on the health front over the course of the practice week. Oct 14 - 7:17 PM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice will play against Auburn on Saturday but is listed as "limited."

Guice has been dealing with a leg/knee injury for weeks, which has prevented him from practicing to Ed Orgeron's standards. His season isn't too different than Leonard Fournette's final year in terms of lost games and an incomplete final season evaluation. We will see how many carries a "limited" player receives.

LSU HC Ed Oregeron says that junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) "looked good" in practice this week ahead of Saturday's game against Auburn.

"I think that (late game) run gave him confidence," Orgeron told reporter Ross Dellenger. Guice (5'11/216) has been plagued by injuries throughout the year, and is likely to be limited on Saturday's game against Auburn. It's still nice to hear that the supremely talented tailback seems to be heading in the right direction despite the injury woes.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that junior RB Derrius Guice (undisclosed) will be limited in Saturday's game against Auburn.

Guice has been bothered by injury concerns -- including a knee issue -- throughout the season. The 5-foot-11, 216-pounder has missed one game on the year, but even when he has been able to play, the numbers just haven't been there. In his last three active contests, the junior back has managed just 140 yards on the ground. This, after putting up a combined 224 rushing yards through the first two games of the campaign.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice is dealing with a "nagging" undisclosed injury that is limiting him in practice.

Head coach Ed Orgeron is certain Guice is getting better and it showed after Guice saw 17 carries and two receptions in the victory over the Gators. However, Guice only managed 71 total yards on those 19 touches. Many believe the undisclosed injury is connected to the knee issue that popped up against Mississippi State. The injuries have prevented Guice from meeting expectations, like Leonard Fournette last year.
Oct 10 - 10:56 AM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) ran for 50 yards on 17 carries in a 17-16 upset win against Florida on Saturday.

He added two catches for 21 yards. Guice has been limited due to a lingering knee injury for nearly a month now. Once again, he didn't look completely like himself. Even so, he was the Tigers' most consistent offensive player. As long as Guice can suit up, LSU will give him as many touches as he can handle going forward. They don't have much choice.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) will play against Florida on Saturday.

Guice is expected to be limited in the contest, but HC Ed Orgeron said on Saturday that he believes the junior back will be able to play the entire game. Darrel Williams will split carries with him.
Oct 7 - 3:30 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that RB Derrius Guice (knee) "did fine" at practice on Thursday.

Guice (5'11/216) has been able to practice everyday this week, and while "did fine" is not exactly a ringing endorsement, it would be unrealistic for him to gush about him in this day of collegiate injuries. It would be an upset if the talented tailback wasn't on the field for the Tigers when they take on Florida this Saturday.
Oct 5 - 8:20 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) should be able to play in a limited capacity against Florida on Saturday.

After missing this past weekend's upset loss to Troy due to a lingering knee injury, Guice has practiced all three days this week. The 5-foot-11, 216-pounder entered the season on the Heisman short list, but after romping out for back-to-back 100-yard showings to start the campaign, his injury concern has prevented him from putting together a full statistical body of work. In four games played this season, Guice has rushed for 314 yards and five touchdowns.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) practiced on Wednesday.

Guice sat out Saturday's loss to Troy due to a nagging knee injury, but has now practiced all three days this week. This is the most positive practice action we've seen from Guice in some time, a strong indicator that he is gearing toward playing against Florida on Saturday. Still, we're taking a wait-and-see approach. LSU has waffled on his injury status several times over the past month-plus. Good signs, here, regardless.
Oct 4 - 7:20 PM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) is practicing on Monday.

Guice missed Saturday's upset loss to Troy because of the knee injury. He should be considered day-to-day, but it's a good sign that he was able to get a practice in this early ahead of their game against Florida on Saturday.
Oct 2 - 6:17 PM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) will not play in Saturday's game against Troy.

Guice, who has been limited by a knee injury for much of the month, took part in pregame warmups, but it looks like the Tigers have opted to give him the evening off to further mend. Darrel Williams will start in his place.
Sep 30 - 7:09 PM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Troy.

Guice was ruled out for this game at the beginning of the week, before his status was upgraded to questionable. However, on Saturday morning LSU HC Ed Orgeron called him "very questionable." All of this preamble out of the way, Guice is currently warming up. If he does play, it wouldn't be a surprise if he saw a limited workload. Darrel Williams will likely see plenty of work regardless of whether Guice manages to take the field to start.
Sep 30 - 5:47 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron called junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) "very questionable" for Saturday's game against Troy.

Guice has not been practicing due to a nagging knee injury -- indeed, he was actually ruled out for this game early in the week before that was softened to a "questionable" designation. Unless LSU opts to push their star junior on Saturday, Darrel Williams will receiving starting carries against the Trojans. We'll pass along word if Guice opts to give it a go, but that currently appears unlikely.
Sep 30 - 5:26 PM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Guice is considered questionable for Saturday's game against Troy. He has yet to practice this week. Given that Tigers HC Ed Orgeron had previously ruled him out for the contest before backtracking a little, don't be surprised if the star junior is unable to give it a go against the Trojans. Darrel Williams will work as starter if Guice is unable to play.
