Quick hitters: Day 6 afternoon practice

LSU went indoors for the afternoon session, and the TigerSportsDigest.com staff was on hand to bring you the latest.

LSU went indoors for the second half of the sixth day of practice and first two-a-days stretch of fall camp.

The media was allowed to observe four, 5-minute sessions.

--- Freshman wide receiver Jarvis Landry (foot stress fracture) appears ahead of schedule with his recovery process. While head coach Les Miles predicted that Landry would be sidelined into the third week of camp, the former Lutcher High star has already tossed aside his protective boot. On Wednesday, Landry, wearing shorts and a T-shirt, worked through light sprints without any protection on his foot. Miles and offensive coordinator Greg Studrawa said Tuesday that Landry and fellow newcomer Odell Beckham would see action as a true freshmen.

--- At the top of the receiver depth chart is Rueben Randle, who seemed to be battling off a leg issue Wednesday afternoon. Randle worked out with his left knee taped, and the junior receiver moved through the individual drills at his own pace – rather than his normal position as the first receiver through each drill. It appeared minor and Randle was not in a no-contact jersey. He didn’t seem to be favoring his leg and was only moving a little slowed than his normal pace.

---- Freshman running back Terrance Magee missed practice again. He was wearing a green no-contact jersey Wednesday morning and has missed a handful of practices since the team suited up six days ago. Much like with Landry and Beckham, Magee is a newcomer who the coaching staff has praised throughout the past week.

---- Wide receiver Armand Williams, fullback J.C. Copeland, linebacker Josh Johns, and offensive guards Will Blackwell and Josh Dworaczyk were the other scholarship players missing from practice. Studrawa said he would move Dworaczyk – who missed all of spring with injury – back in at his own pace, but the absence of Blackwell was a surprise.

--- Guard Josh Williford, who missed the first two practices and was allowed to put pads on for the first time this afternoon, took reps at with the first-team offensive line. If Williford is called upon during the season, the LSU running backs should find plenty of room to run to the right side behind the 6-foot-7, 324-pound Williford and 6-foot-6, 340-pound tackle Alex Hurst.

--- The first-team defense welcomed back Sam Montgomery into their rotation for the first time since his knee injury last fall. Montgomery lined up opposite Ken Adams, and the first-line defensive tackles were Michael Brockers and Josh Downs. The second team consisted of Anthony Johnson and Bennie Logan at the tackle spots and Lavar Edwards and Barkevious Mingo on the ends. Defensive coordinator John Chavis said that he would play five ends and five tackles, meaning the aforementioned will be called upon for snaps each Saturday. Watch for Ego Ferguson and Chancey Aghayere as the fifth tackle and end spots, respectively.

LSU will practice just once Thursday before two-a-days return on Friday and the team’s first scrimmage on Saturday.
