LSU senior C Ethan Pocic missed Monday's practice for unknown reasons.

An LSU spokesperson told reporters Pocic was not injured. Monday's practice was more of a walkthrough, as players practiced in just helmets and shorts. Pocic's final season has not matched his previous few in terms of quality of play, but NFL teams have expressed plenty of interest in Pocic in the past.

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette missed Monday's practice while nursing an ankle injury.

Fournette's ankle has been a nagging injury since the offseason, and he appeared to aggravate the ailment in the school's loss to Auburn. Monday's practice was Ed Orgeron's first as interim head coach, and it was only in helmets and shorts. As of now, there is no need to worry about a long term injury for Fournette, but ankle and foot injuries tend to nag running backs for weeks.

LSU suspended junior DL Davon Godchaux following his Monday booking on false imprisonment and domestic abuse battery/child endangerment.

Each charge is a misdemeanor. This would be interim coach Ed Orgeron's first big move as boss. Godchaux and his girlfriend, who was also arrested, have conflicting versions of the "short tussle", as it was referred to in the police report. Godchaux's suspension is indefinite.

Alabama HC Nick Saban expressed dismay over LSU's mid-season firing of Les Miles.

Said Saban, "A man wins a national championship and two SEC titles, and he doesn’t make it through the season?" The Mad Hatter was fired on Sunday after several listless performances by the Tigers, including Saturday's 18-13 loss to Auburn. Miles has already expressed the hope that he might coach again soon. Or as he told Dan Patrick, "I don't golf. I play no tennis." For his career with the Tigers, Miles held a 114-34 record.

LSU five-star 2017 verbal DT commit Tyler Shelvin described the firing of LSU HC Les Miles as "devastating."

Rivals reached out to a number of LSU commits to gauge their reaction to Miles' firing. Shelvin -- who ranks as the outlet's No. 8 overall prospect for 2017 -- was particularly crushed, saying, "I called him a lot and whenever he needed to talk to me he would contact me. Every time I visited there we had meetings in his office, so we had a tight relationship." Several prospects, including four-star recruits in T Adrian Easley and QB Justin Rogers, expressed a strong hope that LSU would retain their current position coaches. No surprise there. As ILB Tyler Taylor put it, "[Les Miles is] not the guy who recruited me."

Former LSU head coach Les Miles told Dan Patrick he would "have a difficult time not coaching football."

Basically Miles said he will be coaching somewhere else soon, and we would expect his name to come up quickly after the season. "I don’t golf. I play no tennis. I enjoy shooting the gun, I don’t necessarily like pointing it an animals. I play cards," Miles told Patrick. Miles coaches at Oklahoma State prior to joining LSU in 2005 and also coached offensive lineman at Colorado and Michigan before that.

LSU has turned to DL coach Ed Orgeron to fill the interim head coach duties.

After opening the season with a record of 2-2 with National Championship hype heading into the year, LSU made big changes. Steve Ensminger will serve as offensive coordinator. Orgeron is no stranger to interim head coaching titles, as he took over for a fired Lane Kiffin for USC and lobbied to keep the job, but the Trojans elected to go with Steve Sarkisian. If we can use narratives, Orgeron is known as a players' coach and motivator. LSU faces Missouri and Florida in the coming weeks.

LSU fired HC Les Miles.

Miles managed to survive rampant unemployment rumors last November, but he couldn't avoid the boot this time around. The Tigers have been almost completely listless on offense this season, having surpassed 25 points scored in just one of four games. "Decisions like this are never easy ones to make. Coach Miles has done a tremendous job here and he’s been a great ambassador for our University," said AD Joe Avella in a statement, "which makes this even more difficult." In addition to Miles' termination, OC Cam Cameron has also been shown the door. DL coach Ed Orgeron will take over as interim head coach moving forward, while TE coach Steve Ensminger is expected to step in for Cameron.

LSU senior QB Danny Etling completed 15-of-27 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 18-13 loss to Auburn.

Etling almost played hero in this one, as he initially appeared to throw a short game-winning touchdown pass to D.J. Clark in the corner of the end zone as time expired. That would have given Auburn a 19-18 win. As a wise man once said, though, not so fast my friend. Upon review it was determined that Etling did not get the snap off in time. So close yet so far. As for his performance on the whole, there was nothing even close to a fantasy spark, here. Do not pick up Danny Etling for fantasy purposes.

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 101 yards on 16 carries in Saturday's 18-13 loss to Auburn.

Fournette has been slowed by a nagging ankle injury all season and it showed at times on Saturday. Despite his injury concerns, the 6-foot-1, 230-pound NFLer to-be has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of his three games played (he sat out a contest against Jacksonville State due to the ankle tweak). A sign of just how depressing LSU's offense has been this season -- Fournette has failed to score a touchdown twice, now. For reference's sake, he had just one such game (out of 12) last season.

LSU junior S Jamal Adams led the Tigers with nine tackles against Mississippi State on Saturday.

"His run stopping skills helped hold the Bulldogs to under 60 yards rushing on the day," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline. "Forceful and best making plays up the field, I still feel his cover skills are suspect but Adams would thrive as a strong safety or in a zone system." Adams defended six passes last year and chipped in four interceptions last year. Pro Football Focus saw him as a top-100 player coming into the year.
Sep 22 - 8:19 PM

Making his first start of the season, LSU senior QB Danny Etling completed 19-of-30 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-20 win over Mississippi State.

Etling's lone touchdown pass of the game came with 9:37 remaining in the first quarter, when he hit D.J. Chark for a 37-yard score. Otherwise, it was an uneventful start for the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Purdue transfer. HC Les Miles will almost certainly continue to roll with Etling over Brandon Harris so long as the Tigers are winning, but there is no fantasy intrigue here.
Sep 17 - 11:00 PM

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in Saturday's 23-20 win over Mississippi State.

Nagging leg injuries kept Fournette from playing against Jacksonville State last weekend, but he returned with a vengeance in bulldozing through Mississippi State. The star junior scored on runs of five and 25 yards in the first and second quarters, respectively. Despite the fact that he plays in an LSU offense that offers little passing punch, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder has rushed for 284 yards on 51 carries in two games, working to a 5.5 YPC average.
Sep 17 - 10:47 PM

LSU HC Les Miles said that senior QB Danny Etling will start against Mississippi State on Saturday.

This was expected, but we now have official confirmation from Miles. Said the Mad Hatter, "I think Danny can handle the place and the stage and playing in a televised game in Tiger Stadium." He wouldn't completely rule out a return to Brandon Harris should things turn south for the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Etling. The Purdue transfer completed 6-of-14 passes for 100 yards, a touchdown and an interception in last weekend's win over Jacksonville State. There is no fantasy intrigue here.
Sep 16 - 12:47 PM

LSU senior QB Danny Etling is expected to draw the start against Mississippi State, replacing Brandon Harris.

Harris played poorly in five quarters of action, leading to Etling entrance against Jacksonville State. Etling completed 6-of-14 passes for 100 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the school's 34-13 win. Etling is a familiar name, as he transferred from Purdue prior to last season. LSU has talented receivers and running backs, but the quarterback play has brought down the school's offense.
