Veteran OL KJ Malone out vs. Auburn
LSU will be without a key offensive line Saturday against Auburn as K.J. Malone used crutches before the game and wore a brace on his left knee.
Malone, a fifth-year senior, was listed questionable earlier in the week after he missed significant time last week against Florida, but returned in the second half. He’s expected to be replaced by true freshmen Saahdiq Charles.
Injuries have cropped up for the Tigers recently as starting right tackle Toby Weathersby is also questionable.
Welp. Malone is out.
Tigers likely to have a true freshman starting at left tackle. https://t.co/IT1XMVH20r
