LSU coach Ed Orgeron reveals status of WR Terrance Marshall ahead of matchup with Mississippi State
LSU sophomore wide receiver Terrance Marshall was dressed in pads and went through warmups prior to the Tigers facing the Florida Gators on Saturday, but on Monday, coach Ed Orgeron made it sound like Marshall isn’t that close to playing.
Orgeron told the media that Marshall will “do some individual” work this week, but that “he’s not ready to play yet.”
Marshall injured his foot against Vanderbilt in Week 4 on Sept. 21. Prior to the injury, the sophomore was experiencing a breakout campaign with 20 receptions for 304 yards and six touchdowns in just four games.
The LSU passing attack is still one of the best in the country without him, but Heisman candidate quarterback Joe Burrow and the Tigers would surely love to have him back as another weapon, especially before the team faces No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 9. LSU also has a showdown with No. 11 Auburn coming up in a week.
LSU will visit Mississippi State this Saturday before playing those other two rivals in its next two games.
