LSU Injury Report
The current injury report for the LSU Tigers is as follows, as per Sports Illustrated:
- TE Mason Taylor (ankle sprain) – questionable
- LB Omar Speights – doubtful
These two players will have more than enough backing to fill their absences. This includes LSU’s JUCO TE Connor Gilbreath, whom head coach Brian Kelly might trust to get a few reps in blocking sets.
Mississippi State Injury Report
For the currently undefeated Mississippi State Bulldogs, here are the players included in their injury list (via the Clarion Ledger):
- Safety Ja’Kobi Albert – OUT for the season, knee injury
- DL Kalvin Dinkins – OUT, return timetable undisclosed
The Bulldogs are more or less in the same ballpark as LSU when it comes to their injury report for today’s game. This means that they could give the Tigers a run for their money and have a good chance to remain undefeated.
Albert was a former Kentucky Transfer who suffered a knee injury during preseason practice.
According to head coach Zach Arnett, they gave him a couple of weeks to recover and see if he could play with a brace. Albert couldn’t make it work and had to undergo a knee operation that put his hopes of playing this season out the window.
As for Dinkins, he was originally listed as a backup to Nathan Pickering, but he didn’t see the field against Arizona. For this game against LSU, he wasn’t part of the depth chart.
