LSU senior WR D.J. Chark has shown "elite skills" this year for the Tigers, according to NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang.

Chark (6'3/195) was dominant in the upset victory over Auburn, and Rang -- along with a few other analysts -- have sang the senior's praises. "Broad-shouldered, with a tapered, athletic frame and outstanding overall athleticism, Chark looks the part of a star NFL receiver. Terrific body control -- including agility, balance and burst -- allows Chark to elude defenders as a returner and after the catch and suggest that he could develop into a terrific route-runner," Rang said. Chark's speed, size and ability to return kicks could make him one of the first wideouts to be drafted this spring.

LSU sophomore right tackle Toby Weathersby (undisclosed) returned to practice on Monday.

Weathersby (6'6/308) suffered and undisclosed injury against Florida, but it looks like the tackle will make his return this week against Ole Miss.

ESPN's Mel Kiper grades LSU senior WR D.J. Chark as a Day 2 prospect, but he believes Chark "could move up if he tests well."

In LSU's win over Auburn on Saturday, Chark had five catches for 150 yards and a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder has averaged 21.1 yards per catch on 48 career catches. "He's a big-play threat, and I like the way he creates separation late in his routes," Kiper wrote. "I'd like to see him consistently high-point the ball, so he's not a perfect prospect. He also lost a fumble against Auburn. Chark could end up being the top senior receiver in this 2018 class."

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 senior WR D.J. Chark caught five passes for 150 yards in Saturday's 27-23 win over Auburn.

In addition to the strong overall receiving effort on Saturday, Chark had one of the plays of the game in his 75-yard punt return touchdown at the beginning of the fourth quarter to draw the Tigers to within 23-21. They would pick up a pair of field goals later in the quarter to come away with the victory. While the 6-foot-3, 187-pound senior is limited by the passing offense he plays in, he has the athletic chops to put up big numbers on any given Saturday. This was his third 100-yard showing in seven games this season.
Oct 14 - 7:02 PM

LSU sophomore DT Rashard Lawrence (ankle) was forced out of action in Saturday's game against Auburn due to a new injury concern.

Lawrence has been dealing with an ankle injury for several weeks, but it appears that he suffered an additional injury in the first half of Saturday's contest. The 6-foot-3, 309-pounder should be considered questionable to return.
Oct 14 - 5:57 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.
Oct 14 - 2:13 PM

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.
Oct 12 - 8:49 PM

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.
Oct 12 - 2:01 PM

LSU sophomore DT Rashard Lawrence (ankle) practiced on Wednesday.

Lawrence has been dealing with a left ankle injury throughout the early season. He aggravated it once more in Saturday's win over Florida and did not practice on Tuesday. While his return to the practice field on Wednesday is a positive sign, the 6-foot-3, 309-pounder's status for this weekend's showdown with Auburn will not be determined until closer to kickoff.

LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key has dropped down to 255-pounds, as opposed to his previous playing weight of 270-pounds.

The school did not want Key to be as heavy as he was, but a shoulder issue and missed time likely contributed to the weight gain. "His pass rush needs to get better. It's not where it needs to be," Ed Orgeron said, noting it has improved thanks to the drop in weight. Terming the season as a "lost" one for Key might be a little harsh, but he and Derrius Guice have been limited due to injuries.
Oct 10 - 11:14 AM

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.
Oct 7 - 7:14 PM

LSU senior RB Darrel Williams (ankle) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Florida.

Williams injured his ankle against Troy last weekend. He'll be limited and work in rotation with Derrius Guice, who himself is working through a knee injury.
Oct 7 - 3:32 PM

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.
