There won’t be a Haka dance this week.
LSU coach Ed Orgeron confirmed Thursday night that DL Breiden Fehoko won’t play this week against Arkansas. He played with a heavy wrap on his left arm against Alabama, and his status has been in doubt for much of the week.
Meanwhile, S John Battle will travel, but Orgeron doesn’t expect him to play as both players have missed practiced all week. Battle suffered an ankle injury on the first play of the Alabama loss. Todd Harris replaced Battle against Alabama, and forced the first interception of the season by Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa.
Arkansas has the nation’s 95th-ranked pass offense, averaging 202.4 passing yards per game.
Orgeron also said he expects Austin Deculus to start at right tackle, but Adrian Magee would get time there too. Neil Farrell will see some time at nose tackle on Saturday behind Ed Alexander. Tyler Shelvin should get more reps at nose tackle this week.
LSU plays at Arkansas 6:30 p.m. local time on Saturday.
Orgeron clarifies Breiden Fehoko is for sure not playing. John Battle will travel, but he doesn't foresee him playing #LSU
