One of the more tantalizing aspects of the LSU offense is the possibility that All-American cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. could get on the field on offense.

Coach Ed Orgeron addressed the possibility this week after the Tigers wrapped up 6 practices.

“We were going to do it this week, in fact, we were going to do it the day he got a minor injury,” Orgeron said. “I talked to (offensive coordinator Jake Peetz) and Derek about the type of plays we’re going to run. We’re going to see where we are next week. I don’t know if he’s going to be full speed next week. Obviously, I’m not going to play him both ways if he’s not full speed. We have to play that by ear.”

Of course, if Stingley appears on offense, and the Tigers have a big season, he could work his way into the Heisman Trophy conversation.

Stingley is a two-time All-American and one of the more celebrated players in LSU history. Stingely has a chance to join Tommy Casanova (1969-70-71) as the only three-time first team All-Americas in school history.

He will switch his number from No. 24 to No. 7 this year, a number worn by some of the best playmakers in LSU history, including recent defensive back All-Americas in Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu and Grant Delpit.
