LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key has been missing bowl practices while dealing with a knee injury.

Key is also returning from pinky finger surgery. Other future NFLers like Derrius Guice and Donte Jackson will almost certainly play in the school's bowl game, but Key seems 50-50 at best.

LSU received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 DT Dominic Livingston.

Livingston (6'4/345) was in Texas A&M's corner from December of 2016 up until October of this year, when he reopened his recruitment. He was eventually swayed over to LSU following an official visit to Baton Rouge this past weekend. 247Sports' Gabe Brooks notes that the Houston native is "a prototype nose tackle who regularly disrupts the opponent's run game." The analyst would like to see him tighten up his technique and balance, which could help to open up his game in pass-rushing situations.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice will play in the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame on New Year's Day.

Guice (5'11/216) tweeted on Friday that he's "not missing a game I'm fully capable of playing in." The junior running back plans on making his draft decision public at some point after the Citrus Bowl. This season, he's rushed for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those fine numbers could have been even loftier -- potentially Heisman-contention loftier -- had Guice not been fighting through a knee injury early in the campaign. He's likely ticketed for a top-15 selection in the spring draft assuming he does declare in a few weeks.

LSU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 JUCO T Badara Traore.

Texas was also vying for Traore's commitment, with Longhorns HC Tom Herman paying the 6-foot-8, 315-pounder an in-home visit earlier this week. LSU HC Ed Orgeron did likewise and it was Orgeron who ultimately emerged victorious in this recruiting battle. Traore has spent the past two seasons plying his trade with ASA College (New York). 247Sports' composite ranks him as the No. 1 JUCO tackle prospect in the country and the No. 6 overall JUCO prospect in the 2018 class. LSU's decision to target Traore makes complete sense, as they're in line to potentially lose multiple players off their offensive line. Left tackle K.J. Malone is a senior, while C Will Clapp and RT Toby Weathersby are both eligible for the draft as juniors. Traore plans on signing with the Tigers on Dec. 20 and enrolling on campus for the spring semester come January.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice says he's still up "in the air" about whether or not to declare for the NFL Draft.

In a post Monday night on Instagram, Guice indicated that he wouldn't announce his intentions until after LSU plays Notre Dame on Jan. 1 in the Citrus Bowl. Last season, in nearly an identical situation, LSU RB Leonard Fournette decided to skip the bowl game. Guice has given no indication either way. He did say, however, that he's "finally 100% thank the lord" after dealing with a knee issue earlier this fall. Guice is a projected top-15 pick if he declares. "We’ve seen him come back and dominate," Bleacher Report's Matt Miller said of Guice's knee issues. "He’s so pretty running the ball. Guice is so natural as a runner. He makes everything look easily. He runs with power and patience. It’s rare to find that balance." Miller believes Guice is in the "7-15 pick range" if he enters the draft.

Former LSU HC Les Miles texted "No real news" to the Baton Rouge Advocate's Ross Dellenger when the reporter asked him about receiving interest from Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer.

A report broke on Saturday night that Fulmer had reached out to Miles, but the former Tigers HC at least somewhat played that down. Still, ESN's Adam Rittenberg reported at the end of November that Miles was "very interested" in the open gig at Tennessee, so this one may be worth monitoring.
Dec 3 - 1:58 PM

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that former LSU HC Les Miles is "very interested" in the head-coaching position at Tennessee.

Rittenberg writes that Miles would "welcome the chance to discuss the position," but as of yet, has not had actual contact with Tennessee. We have seen no reports of the Volunteers sniffing around the current FOX analyst, so for the time being, this would appear to be a one-sided desire.

LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key will have pinky finger surgery on his right hand, but is expected to return in time for the school's bowl game.

Key has dealt with the injury for the last two months. It is not what kept him out of the school's two recent games against Arkansas and Texas A&M, as Key also faced a right knee injury during that time. LSU's bowl game will certainly be the last for Key and Darrius Guice. As you know, Key missed extended time during the spring with a shoulder issue.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that he expects OC Matt Canada to pursue a head-coaching position this offseason.

Orgeron is all for this possibility and hopes that Canada can find a suitable job. LSU brought the then-Pitt offensive coordinator into the fold over the winter. The Tigers initially signed him to a three-year contract. LSU managed at least 30 points in half of their games this season. That might not seem the most sparkling of marks, but given their past track record and the fact that they were rolling with a game-manager in QB Danny Etling, there were at least some offensive steps forward under Canada's watchful eye.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice ran for 127 yards and a touchdown on 28 attempts in Saturday's 45-21 rout of Texas A&M.

Guice has scored at least one touchdown in a season-high three consecutive games while going for 127 or more rushing yards in three of his past five contests. He wrapped up the regular season with 1,153 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Guice is battling Penn State's Saquon Barkley to be the first back taken in the 2018 NFL Draft should both players declare.
Nov 26 - 12:47 AM

LSU senior QB Danny Etling completed 19-of-30 passes for 347 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 45-21 win against Texas A&M.

Etling's first three-touchdown performance came at the perfect time, as he led the Bayou Bengals to their fourth consecutive victory. After posting multiple TD games just twice over the first seven games he has thrown two or more TDs in three of the past five outings. Next up for Etling and the Tigers will be a bowl game, most likely on New Year's Day.
Nov 26 - 12:41 AM

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.
Nov 20 - 5:15 PM

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.
Nov 20 - 3:25 PM

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.
Nov 20 - 2:39 PM

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.
