The quarterback battle that never seems to die for LSU took another turn on Thursday as sophomore Brandon Harris ran with the starting offense during the Tigers' morning session on the first day of Fall Camp.
Harris went through drills on the Ponderosa with the other presumed members of the first-team backfield, including tailback Leonard Fournette and fullback John David Moore.
Anthony Jennings, who started all but one game at quarterback for the Bayou Bengals a season ago, worked with the second-team duo of Darrel Williams, tailback, and Tony Upchurch, fullback.
It would be unwise to read too much into this very early development, as Harris and Jennings may well rotate working with the starters in the weeks to come, but it is noteworthy that Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron are rewarding last year's talented backup by trotting him out first to usher in August's Fall Camp.
The possibility also exists that this is part of the internal discipline Miles indicated he would dole out to Jennings and defensive back Dwayne Thomas, both of whom were arrested over the summer and indefinitely suspended before being reinstated last week after the charges were dropped.
No matter what the specifics are, the result on the field is that Harris, who spent about five weeks alone with LSU's receivers during Jennings' suspension this summer, is getting his shot.
