LSU starting QB Myles Brennan has dealt with a significant lower body injury since the loss at Missouri on Oct. 10. Since then, he has tried to practice, but it’s been difficult, and he’s missed the majority of action for the Tigers.

On Wednesday, coach Ed Orgeron said the medical evaluation for Brennan is still underway.

“We are looking at the injury, we are looking to see if he can come back through rehab or if the best thing would be an operation that would help him,” Orgeron said. “We have not made a final decision, but he is unlikely to come back.”

After that, Brennan offered his own update.

“Just have to keep fighting. Looking forward to being back out there with my guys,” Brennan tweeted.

Without Brennan, LSU is also dealing with COVID-19 cases in the program, including at quarterback. Orgeron earlier this week would not specify whether Brennan’s top two backups — freshmen TJ Finley and Max Johnson — were affected by COVID-19 testing or quarantines, or whether their availability was in doubt.

Either way, LSU has more time to make decisions after its game with Alabama was called off because LSU dipped below the minimum number of players needed to play the Crimson Tide on Saturday.
