LSU QB Myles Brennan continues to recover from the significant lower body injury suffered against Missouri, and coach Ed Orgeron said Brennan is unlikely to play this week at Auburn.

Speaking on the SEC coaches media teleconference on Wednesday, Orgeron said poise is what stood out for freshman backup QB T.J. Finley, who was 17-for-21 passing for 265 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the win Saturday over South Carolina.

“I hope he plays as well as he did in the first game, that would be good enough for me,” Orgeron said. “I was most impressed with was his poise. He looks so confident and made some great decisions. He’s got a cannon for an arm. He escaped some pressure, which we thought he could after he lost the weight. He was 265 when it came, lost a lot of weight. But his presence on the field I think that’s what I was most impressed with now. He can improve on some decision makers, and improve on making a couple of more decisions.”

Orgeron also added that it made him sick to see Alabama star Jaylen Waddle get hurt, and Orgeron said he recruited Waddle. Speaking of wide receivers, Orgeron said Terrace Marshall has helped his stock by his play this season.
