Broussard and his teammates were engaged in a brief, 20-play scrimmage that the media was not allowed to attend.
Broussard, a preseason second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection going into 2005, rushed for a team-best 867 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2004. Broussard set the LSU single-game record with 250 yards rushing last year against Ole Miss.
"I feel really bad for Alley," LSU coach Les Miles said. "He worked so hard this summer and put himself in a position to have a great fall.
"I'm disappointed for Alley as well as the entire team. We were really looking forward to seeing him in the backfield this fall. This now creates an opportunity for Justin (Vincent) and Shyrone (Carey) to step up and get some additional carries."
Joining Vincent and Carey in the backfield for the Tigers is senior Joseph Addai. Addai has rushed for 1,666 yards and nine touchdowns in his career with the Tigers.
Broussard entered fall practice last Saturday ranked second on the depth chart at tailback behind senior Joseph Addai.
Broussard lost for season
