For the third straight week, Garrett Brumfield will be watching LSU from the sideline.
The Tigers left guard will miss this Saturday’s game against Georgia, coach Ed Orgeron said during his Monday press conference. The senior is still dealing with a knee injury he suffered against Louisiana Tech on Sept. 22.
Orgeron said junior Adrian Magee will remain in Brumfield’s place despite some struggles in the team’s 27-19 loss at No. 14 Florida last Saturday. With Brumfield out and several other rotational players banged up, LSU surrendered 11 tackles for loss and five sacks.
The Tigers now must try to compensate for Brumfield’s loss against another stout defensive front. No. 13 LSU (5-1, 2-1 SEC) hosts No. 2 Georgia (6-0, 4-0) at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
