LSU opened training camp to some troubling news as it was announced by Ed Orgeron that returning starter Ed Ingram had been suspended indefinitely by the team. Orgeron would not comment further, aside from noting that Ingram would not be participating in any of LSU’s training camp.

Ingram started the final 12 games at right guard for the Tigers last season and he repped over 700 snaps for the team as a true freshman. In recent days, Orgeron has declined to discuss why Ingram was away from the team, saying only that “legal matters” where keeping him away.

Ingram is a native of DeSoto, Texas and his arrest came in Dallas County on Aug. 2, before the start of LSU’s current training camp.
