Ed Orgeron says Fournette, others likely out for Florida game

On the SEC Coaches Teleconference call, LSU coach Ed Orgeron updated the status of injuries on Tigers like Leonard Fournette.

On Wednesday's SEC Coaches Teleconference, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said running back Leonard Fournette is likely out for the Florida game. Orgeron stopped short of ruling him out.

"He hasn't practiced all week so doesn't look like he'll play, but we'll see."

The offensive line is also influx with Orgeron saying Will Clapp is out a couple weeks and tight end Foster Moreau is also out this week. With Clapp out, LSU has been working linemen at different positions including center Ethan Pocic at right tackle.

"Here's Jeff Grimes managing his position. There's some things with Will Clapp being out that we're experimenting with. We'll have to see on Saturday," Orgeron said.

LSU's offensive line is already without right tackle Toby Weathersby for Saturday's matchup at Florida that is scheduled for 11 am CT.

Other tidbits:

  • LSU is preparing for potentially bad weather in Florida. "We had the wet ball drills."
  • On preparing for two Florida quarterbacks: "We have a gameplan for both quarterbacks. Dave Aranda is an excellent DC and has an outstanding plan." 
  • Orgeron was asked if he thought about potentially not taking the LSU interim job because of what happened with him at USC. "Never crossed my mind. I was all in."
