Ed Orgeron announces offensive starter suspended indefinitely
LSU is dealing with a suspension to one of its starters along the offensive line.
Coach Ed Orgeron announced at a Monday press conference that left tackle Dare Rosenthal is suspended indefinitely.
“I don’t know when he will be back,” Orgeron said.
Cam Wire is set to replace Rosenthal, and Charles Turner is now the backup.
“I’m very impressed with Cam, when we recruited him, he was about 270, 280,” Orgeron said. “He’s gained weight, has got quick feet. Has gotten better and better. He’s playing well right now.”
Rosenthal missed the Vanderbilt game because of injury.
Wire is in his third season, and appeared in six games last season. He was originally expected to be a backup at right tackle, but has already filled in for Rosenthal earlier this season. He’s now listed at 6-foot-6 and 311 pounds.
With a new QB in T.J. Finley, the Tigers also had their best rushing effort of the season on Saturday in the win over South Carolina. The Tigers rushed 54 times for 276 yards and three touchdowns.
LSU plays at Auburn this week in the “SEC on CBS” game.
