After a bit of vagueness from head coach Les Miles, senior center Elliott Porter will indeed miss LSU’s home opener as part of a two-game suspension, according to a report from Ross Dellenger The Advocate (Baton Rouge).

Miles had dodged questions about Porter’s availability early in the week, only hinting that the senior center would be sitting out against Sam Houston State. On Wednesday, Miles told reporters that he was unsure whether or not Porter would see action. Reports have the suspension coming as a result of discrepancies in Porter’s pay from his summer job, although team spokesmen declined to comment on the situation.

For the second straight week, sophomore Ethan Pocic will be the man snapping the ball. The 6-foot-7, 301 pound sophomore earned the starting job thanks to a strong performance in camp, beating out incumbent Porter, who started 12 of 13 games in 2013. Porter, who was included on the Rimington Award watch list before the season, came into camp listed at the top of the depth chart. Miles hasn’t given any indication as to whether or not the senior will take back the starting role once his suspension ends.

Offensive line play is a question mark for LSU going forward. Early on in the season opening win against Wisconsin, the Tigers struggled to run the ball and fell behind. When Badgers senior defensive tackles Warren Herring and Konrad Zagzebski left the game with injuries, LSU had much more success on the ground, helping to open up the offense and trigger the Tigers’ comeback.

Cornerback Rashard Robinson’s status for the game remains unclear. Robinson was suspended for the opener as well, and is listed as the backup to Jalen Collins on the Tigers’ depth chart.
