Ed Orgeron updates status of pair of injured offensive players after LSU's Peach Bowl win
LSU lost a pair of offensive players on Saturday, as right guard Damien Lewis and wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. both left the Tigers’ Peach Bowl win with injuries.
After LSU’s 63-28 College Football Playoff semifinal victory over Oklahoma, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron updated the status of the pair of injured players.
Lewis exited with an ankle injury, and Orgeron said the senior offensive lineman could miss some time.
“Somebody hit his ankle on the side,” Orgeron told the media during his postgame press conference. “He’s going to be out for a bit. I don’t know the severity of it yet.”
Lewis was seen on crutches and wearing a boot after Saturday’s game.
Things don’t appear to be as bad for Marshall, who suffered a shoulder injury, as Orgeron said the sophomore wide receiver should be fine moving forward.
Marshall also updated his status, telling the media that if the game had been closer, he would have been OK to come back in for the Tigers. He also confirmed that he’ll be good to go for the CFP National Championship matchup against either Ohio State or Clemson.
