Brian Kelly had positive news on LSU’s injury situation Thursday ahead of the SEC Championship Game. While QB Jayden Daniels is the most prominent Tiger dealing with injury, Kelly had other notable updates.

Josh Williams has dealt with a knee issue. Kelly said he liked what he saw from the running back in practice. Williams has 91 carries for 477 yards and 6 touchdowns on the season.

“Yeah, I was really pleased with Josh yesterday,” Kelly told reporters. “I think he looked like himself finally. This is an injury that takes some time because of the way he runs. He’s such a physical runner. He plays so hard. His physical exertion and effort is one where he’s not a guy that’s going to go at less than 100%.

“I think yesterday was really the first time where I felt like, ‘Okay, we’ve got Josh back to where he needs to be, to be confident and effective.’”

CB Jarrick Bernard-Converse has been dealing with a concussion. Kelly said JBC is good to go.

“Jarrick was cleared through our concussions protocol,” Kelly told reporters. “He is obviously going to play an important role for us, as well.”

This season, Converse has 35 tackles, 4 passes defended and an interception.
