LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow was spotted in a sling.

Burrow (6'4/216) played well in LSU's bowl win on New Year's Day, so this is likely a minor injury that won't affect his 2019 offseason at all. At least that's what The Advocate's Brooks Kubena is hearing from LSU staff. As a redshirt junior in 2018, Burrow passed for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he began to show more upside later in the season. Burrow should surpass these stats in 2019, assuming he's healthy.

LSU redshirt junior RB Justin Jones has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

Jones (5'8/184) walked on at LSU prior to the 2016 season and has not received a carry during his time with the program. Assuming he does, indeed, move on from the Tigers, he will have to sit out the 2019 campaign barring a transfer out of the FBS ranks.

LSU junior LB Devin White declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

A massive gain for the NFL Draft is a big loss for the LSU defense. White is universally ranked as one of the top linebackers -- non edge-rusher edition -- and many have gone so far to call him the top defensive player in this class. He posted 115 tackles, three sacks, and five passes defended. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound linebacker is a lock for the first round, and assuming he tests well at the combine, it's very possible he's a top five-to-ten selection.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah says, "It’s a challenge sorting the CBs in this draft."

Jeremiah doesn't believe that the 2019 CB class has a high-end prospect like Denzel Ward, but there are "several really good players" making it a tough task to separate the top prospects at the position. That means Jeremiah doesn't believe in Greedy Williams, Byron Murphy, or other corners as elite prospects. Back in December, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller called Williams a "top-15 lock" and The Athletic's Dane Brugler recently mocked Williams to the Jets with the No. 5 overall pick. There seems to be some disagreement here.
Jan 11 - 7:19 PM

LSU junior LB Michael Divinity will return to school for the 2019 season.

Divinity (6'2/238) returning to the fold as LSU sets their sights on the offseason. The junior linebacker registered 51 tackles (9.5 for loss), four sacks, an interception and a forced fumble across 11 games played during the 2018 campaign.
Jan 8 - 1:09 PM

LSU freshman OG Chasen Hines (knee) underwent surgery on Friday.

Hines (6'4/336) played through an undisclosed knee injury for most of his true freshman season, and he was forced into switching positions (from defensive tackle to offensive guard) late into the offseason. Despite the chaos, Hines was able to play in eight games for LSU, and he'll be a starting interior candidate in 2019, assuming his surgery went well.
Jan 4 - 5:22 PM

LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan will not transfer.

There was speculation that Brennan might look for an opportunity to start, but the sophomore is going to stay patient, even with him unlikely to start at quarterback with Joe Burrow coming back. The former four-star recruit only played in one game this year, so this will be a redshirt season for him. Expect him to compete for the job in 2020 when Burrow graduates.
Jan 2 - 9:42 PM

LSU freshman WR Ja'Marr Chase caught six passes for 93 yards and one touchdown in Tuesday's 40-32 bowl win over UCF.

Chase (6'2/195) is a 2018 four-star recruit, and the bowl game breakout is a good showing of what's to come. The freshman looked the part of a future productive player, and he'll be a candidate to improve on this season's 23-313-3 receiving line next season. The Tigers have multiple intriguing, young receivers.
Jan 1 - 5:39 PM

LSU sophomore WR Justin Jefferson caught four passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns in Tuesday's 40-32 bowl win over UCF.

Jefferson (6'2/185) was electric as a receiver against the "defending national champions", picking up his fifth and sixth touchdowns of the year. The sophomore will end his season with 54 receptions and 875 yards, which puts him on the radar for the 2020 NFL Draft. Assuming Joe Burrow stays for his redshirt senior season, the Tigers offense may become more pass heavy in 2019 and Jefferson will be the primary beneficiary.
Jan 1 - 5:33 PM

LSU senior RB Nick Brossette rushed 29 times for 117 yards in Tuesday's 40-32 bowl win over UCF.

Brossette (6'1/221) wasn't overly productive, but it was a gutsy performance for the down-hill runner. As a senior, Brossette rushed for 1,039 yards and 14 touchdowns, and we'll get a chance to look at him at the East-West Shrine Game. The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard doesn't anticipate Brossette to wow anyone at the NFL Combine, but he notes that the senior is "physical in all aspect of the game." It appears that Brossette is gunning for a Day 3 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Jan 1 - 5:27 PM

LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 21-of-34 passes for 394 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in Tuesday's 40-32 bowl win over UCF.

Burrow (6'4/216) lit up the undefeated Knights on his way to setting career highs in both yards and touchdowns. After beginning the year as a game manager, Burrow began to break out of his shell for three straight games with at least 270 yards. The former Ohio State quarterback ends his first complete season with 16 passing touchdowns and just four interceptions. Assuming he comes back for his redshirt senior season, Burrow will be a candidate to set new season-long career highs in yards (2,894) and touchdowns (16) in 2018.
Jan 1 - 5:20 PM

LSU junior DT Rashard Lawrence has left the Fiesta Bowl against UCF with an undisclosed injury.

It's possible Lawrence is cramping up, but he looked like he was in considerable pain after UCF scored a touchdown with just about two minutes left in the game. He's been a monster for LSU today, getting into the backfield with ease and making several tackles for loss. Until we know more, he's questionable to return.

LSU junior LB Michael Divinity has left the Fiesta Bowl against UCF with an undisclosed injury.

Divinity was putting pressure on Dariel Mack and went down with what appears to be a lower body injury. He's been one of the best pass rushers for the Tigers in 2018 with five sacks on the season. Until we hear more, he should be considered questionable to return.

LSU sophomore S Grant Delpit was ejected for targeting during the second quarter of Tuesday's Fiesta Bowl.

Oh mercy. The Tigers have now lost both Delpit and Terrence Alexander (who threw a punch at the end of the first quarter) to ejections, this after coming into the game with multiple members of the secondary sitting out either injured, disciplined or for draft purposes. While by the rule of the law this Delpit ejection might be warranted, the play itself was one which was not dirty and could not be realistically avoided, as the receiver whom he hit was in the air and going down wrapped up as the sophomore safety started into his tackling motion. Simply a matter of physics which put Delpit's helmet in the wrong place at the wrong time. Todd Harris came on to replace him at safety following the ejection. Delpit wraps his just-shortened 2018 season having registered a strong 73 tackles (9.5 for loss), five sacks, five interceptions and nine passes defended over the course of 12-plus games played.
Jan 1 - 2:33 PM

LSU redshirt senior DB Terrence Alexander was ejected for throwing a punch during Tuesday's Fiesta Bowl matchup with UCF.

An exceedingly bad decision by Alexander, who threw the punch out of frustration while being engaged on a block by Greg Davis near the left sideline at the end of the first quarter. LSU entered the game down all sorts of bodies in the secondary. Down one more, now. That punch represents the final play of the 5-foot-10, 187-pounder's Tigers career. He ends his 2018 season with 23 tackles and three passes defended in eight-plus games played. Mannie Netherly replaced Alexander in the lineup following his Fiesta Bowl ejection.
