LSU senior T K.J. Malone (knee) is questionable for Saturday against Texas A&M, according to HC Ed Orgeron.

Malone (6'4/302) has missed five straight games. Coach O hopes he'll be able to practice this week to test the knee. Malone has not practiced since getting injured against Florida on October 7.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron deems LSU senior ILB Donnie Alexander (shoulder or neck) questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Alexander missed last week's game against Tennessee with a shoulder or neck injury he suffered the week before against Arkansas. Freshman Tyler Taylor will start again if Alexander can't go.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron labeled junior edge rusher Arden Key (knee) questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Key missed last week's game against Tennessee following a lost week of practice. He suffered the knee injury the week before against Arkansas. The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder is a potential top-10 selection in the spring's draft, but he continues to be dogged by injuries. Prior to the current knee issue, he missed the first two games of the season while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

LSU senior RB Darrel Williams carried seven times for 68 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-10 victory at Tennessee.

Williams had his first multi-TD performance since running for 38 yards and a pair of scores back on Sept. 9 against Chattanooga of the FCS. He has found the end zone eight times through 11 games, which is great production considering the fact he has double-digit carries in just five outings this season due to the presence of Derrius Guice. The regular season wraps up next Saturday against Texas A&M.
Nov 19 - 1:03 AM

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice rushed 24 times for 97 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 30-10 win at Tennessee.

Guice is healthy again and he is humming along with five touchdowns over the past four outings. The Baton Rouge native continues to improve his stock leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, and he is battling Penn State's Saquon Barkley to be the first back taken if both declare for the draft as expected. His final SEC game might be next Saturday night in Death Valley against Texas A&M.

LSU senior ILB Donnie Alexander did not travel with the team and will not play against Tennessee on Saturday.

Alexander is dealing with a shoulder or neck injury sustained against Arkansas. Freshman Tyler Taylor will see his fourth start because of it.

LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key did not travel with the team ahead of their game with Tennessee on Saturday.

This is a big loss for the Tigers, as Key was recovering back to his 2016 form. However, his 2017 season has been full of delays and injuries, and he suffered a new knee injury in the first quarter last week against Arkansas. He played with the ailment for two quarters before exiting. The extent of the injury has not been disclosed.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein has been told by scouts that LSU junior RB Derrius Guice has been building buzz involving his 2017 draft stock.

Guice was hampered by injuries and struggled a bit even when healthy out of the gate, but few tailbacks have been better of the last few weeks. In fact, Zierlein believes that the way the 5-foot-11, 218-pound tailback has played over the last week could allow him to challenge Penn State's Saquon Barkley for the top running back spot in the 2018 draft. If Guice continues to play well and Barkley continues to "struggle" -- a relative term to be sure -- this could get interesting if both declare for the draft as expected.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron raved about senior WR Russell Gage's special teams impact.

We pass this along because special teams aptitude is Gage's ticket to the NFL. The 6-foot, 180-pounder doesn't have the best measureables nor numbers (19 career receptions), but he's "all over the special teams film," per Orgeron. Gage is one of the nation's better gunners.

LSU freshman RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (undisclosed) practiced on Wednesday.

Edwards-Helaire (5'8/190) did not practice on Tuesday, but whatever he's dealing with was not enough to keep him out for an extended amount of time. This season, the former three-star recruit has rushed for 31 yards on eight carries. He's seen the field most productively as a kick returner, averaging 20.9 yards per runback on 10 such touches.
Nov 15 - 9:47 PM

LSU senior DE Deondre Clark (undisclosed) took part in practice on Wednesday.

Clark did not practice last week, nor did he dress out for Saturday's win over Arkansas. The 6-foot-3, 269-pound senior has recorded seven tackles on the year. Just whether or not he'll be ready for this weekend's showdown with Tennessee will be determined at the end of the practice week.
Nov 15 - 9:09 PM

LSU senior T K.J. Malone (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Malone (6'4/302) is very much in line to sit out against Tennessee this coming weekend. If that is the case -- Tigers HC Ed Orgeron has termed him "very questionable -- it would mark the fifth consecutive game that the senior has missed. We wouldn't be surprised if he sat against both Tennessee and Texas A&M to close out the regular season. Malone has not practiced since injuring his knee against Florida on October 7.
Nov 15 - 8:18 PM

LSU senior ILB Donnie Alexander (upper body) did not practice on Wednesday.

Alexander (6'1/212) suffered a shoulder or neck issue in Saturday's win over Arkansas. He has yet to practice this week. If the senior can't play against Tennessee in a few days, look for freshman Tyler Taylor to potentially receive additional snaps.
Nov 15 - 7:38 PM

LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Key sustained the knee injury against Arkansas on Saturday and has not appeared in any of the first three opening media windows of the practice week. He's been labeled questionable for this weekend's upcoming contest with Tennessee. The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder is a potential top-10 selection in the spring's draft, but medical checkups are going to play a part in his ultimate slot -- not only is Key dealing with his current knee issue, he missed the first two games of the campaign while finishing up his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.
Nov 15 - 6:17 PM

LSU senior T K.J. Malone is "very questionable" for Saturday against Tennessee, according to HC Ed Orgeron.

The senior offensive lineman didn't dress for LSU’s win on Saturday against Arkansas. Malone suffered a left knee injury at Florida. He was seen without crutches on the sidelines. Malone, the son of NBA legend Karl Malone, thought about leaving the team last year. Not to declare for the draft, but to become a U.S. marshal, his dream. "I love football, don’t get me wrong, but I love this country and I’d do anything for it," Malone said. Malone has played all five OL positions during his career at LSU.
