All LSU players healthy for start of camp

LSU will not have any players limited for Thursday's start of fall camp.

LSU will not have any players limited with injury for the start of fall camp Thursday.

Les Miles said Wednesday that all 105 players invited to participate in camp have reported and are ready to start preparations for the season.

Miles mentioned specifically two players that were held out of spring practices but are healthy for fall.

Corey Thompson has not played in a game for LSU since late in the 2013 season after suffering a torn ACL. He was briefly on the practice field last fall before setbacks forced him back to the sidelines.

Miles said Thompson most recently had a procedure done on his knee in January or February and will be ready to go for camp.

The other player Miles mentioned was Quentin Thomas. He suffered torn biceps in both arms last year, requiring offseason surgery. He did not practice with the team in the spring, but Miles said he too will return to the field for camp.

Thomas is expected to be LSU’s third defensive tackle behind Davon Godchaux and Christian Lacouture. Thomas had 9 tackles in 11 games last season.

The only other player limited in spring was Dwayne Thomas. He worked out only in a green jersey and sat out the spring game. But he said in April that he was medically cleared after the spring game.

He was reinstated to the team Friday after the district attorney decided against filing charges for his offseason arrest.
