LSU’s offensive line has been battered this year, with several freshmen having to step into key roles at different times.

However, the Tigers have some good news heading into Saturday’s game at Ole Miss, as junior OL Toby Weathersby will be back in action.

Coach Ed Orgeron confirmed during his Wednesday radio show that Weathersby was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice and will play against the Rebels:

Star RB Derrius Guice has had trouble getting things going this season while dealing with injuries and ineffectiveness, but with another starter returning to the line in front of him, he could have a big day against the Rebels on Saturday.

Weathersby’s presence will also help QB Danny Etling and the Tigers’ passing game, which has been getting going in recent weeks.

Check out Saturday’s action when the game kicks off at 6:15 p.m. Central time on ESPN.
