LSU QB Brandon Harris had surgery last month to repair a sports hernia injury.

On Wednesday, Tigers coach Les Miles was asked to give an update on his starting quarterback following a press conference to announce the hiring of two assistant coaches.

His response should give Tigers fans every reason to maintain a positive outlook:

Last month, LSU beat writer Glenn Guilbeau spoke with Harris prior to the procedure, which had an anticipated six-to-eight week recovery time:

“It’s something minor, and I have to go get it taken care of now that the season is over,” Harris said in a phone interview. “It’s nothing serious, but I’ve had it for a long time. It’s been nagging at me for a while. So, this is the perfect time to take care of it. It’s a minor procedure.”

With Harris firing on all cylinders by spring practice, the Tigers should be in great position to prepare for a strong push at the SEC West title in 2016.
