LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton is reportedly unsure if he will declare for the NFL Draft.
Fulton recently underwent ankle surgery, so if he does declare for the draft, his time with LSU is over. He'd be the second starting corner to declare for the draft, as Greedy Williams announced his intent to declare on Sunday. Fulton has played well for the Tigers, but another strong year for LSU could see him see his draft stock rise significantly. Stay tuned. Dec 3 - 11:45 AM

LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton will not play against Rice on Saturday.

"He's out," LSU HC Ed Orgeron said during his Monday press conference. "I don't know how long he's out, but he's going to be out for awhile, I believe." That's a big blow for the LSU defensive backfield, although they should be fine on Saturday against the not-so-good Rice program. He picked up the injury against Arkansas, and there's a good chance we won't see him again until a bowl game -- at the earliest.

LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton (ankle) is struggling with an injury that's expected to limit his playing time in the second half of Saturday's game against Arkansas.

According to the report Fulton tested out his ankle towards the end of halftime but was still limping around. The junior cornerback may not see as much playing time as he normally does, but he has not been ruled out for a return to action.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton "might be good enough to declare" for the 2019 NFL draft.

Fulton has had an odd path to success after "barely appearing in his true freshman season (three games), suspended by the NCAA for his second season and then having what would have been the second year of his suspension revoked by the NCAA allowing him to play this season." Ledyard believes Fulton has improved in every game this season and "NFL interest may be there for him to consider the 2019 draft as a potential top 50 pick." Fulton may stay back for another season as he hasn't had much experience but could be swayed by the prospect of being a relatively high draft pick.

LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton, who was injured in the the third quarter of Saturday's game at Auburn, returned to action in the fourth.

With S John Battle having been ejected due to targeting, the return of Fulton was key for depth and talent reasons. The Tigers have seen multiple players go down due to injury Saturday, but the majority of those players have been able to return to the field.

LSU junior CB Kristian Fulton left Saturday's game at Auburn in the third quarter after getting injured while making a tackle.

What the exact injury is -- and whether or not Fulton will be able to return -- is not known at this point in time. But he did remain down on the turf while being checked out by team trainers before walking off under his own power. We'll update Fulton's status as more information becomes available.

The NCAA has reinstated LSU DB Kristian Fulton.

Head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed this and said that Fulton will be available to play in their season opener against Miami if he can pass an NCAA administered drug test. Orgeron was "not expecting this at all" but is "elated." Most failed drug tests come with a one-year suspension from the NCAA, but Fulton was caught trying to tamper with his test which resulted in a two year ban. He was halfway through the expected suspension when the NCAA seemingly had a change of heart barring a passed drug test. The former five-star recruit will likely work his way into what is already a stacked starting secondary for LSU.
Aug 23 - 8:24 PM

The NCAA has denied the appeal of LSU DB Kristian Fulton in regards to his two-year suspension for violation of the governing body's drug program.

Fulton (6'1/195) is halfway home on his suspension, having already sat out the 2017 season in accordance with the NCAA's ruling. All of this was brought down on the defensive back's head due to his allegedly tampering with a drug-testing sample. While his appeal has failed, Fulton and family will try one more avenue, with a waiver request to the governing body. He might just be out of options here when it comes to potentially returning in 2018. LSU HC Ed Orgeron has previously stated that Fulton would be in competition to start if reinstated -- Coach O has praised his practice habits while he's been out of action -- but barring that, we'll likely be looking at some combination of Terrence Alexander, Kelvin Joseph, Kary Vincent, Jontre Kirklin and Mannie Netherly working in rotation opposite elite CB Greedy Williams.
Aug 10 - 11:13 AM

LSU DB Kristian Fulton is currently appealing a two-year suspension for violating the NCAA drug program.

Fulton is currently half-way through that suspension, as he had to sit out the 2017 season for allegedly attempting to use a fraudulent testing sample. The former five-star signing was a big loss for the Tigers, as he was expected to serve as the nickel back for LSU last fall; a position that Ross Dellenger reports they never filled adequately. If not reinstated, he'll be eligible to play at the beginning of the 2019 season.

LSU freshman CB Kristian Fulton will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing finger surgery.

Fulton was not relied on in games during his first season, seeing action in two contests and making two tackles. He was considered a four-star recruit by many services.

Four-star CB Kristian Fulton signed with LSU.

HC Les Miles has had a few swings and misses on National Signing Day, but he's holding his weight in his home state. Not only are the Top-5 players in Louisiana all expected to sign the Tigers, he could have 12 of the best 14 when all is said and done. Fulton's up there with the most talented of 'em. The 6-foot, 172-pound corner ranks No. 27 in the ESPN 300 and No. 3 at his position. He has an instinctive feel for tracking the ball and has shown nice anticipatory skills when it comes to making his move. He's also not afraid to help out on run defense.
