LSU Issues Surprising Health Update Ahead Of Clemson Game
LSU issued a surprising health update ahead of the Clemson game.
Last weekend the Tigers blew out Oklahoma in embarrassing fashion to secure a spot in the National Championship Game.
What made the 63-28 rout all the more impressive was the fact that LSU did all that damage without one of their best playmakers.
Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was questionable going into the outing and ended up only carrying the ball twice for 14 yards.
Despite that, behind Heisman trophy winner Joe Burrow, LSU gained almost 500 yards of total offense and scored eight touchdowns in the victory.
Unfortunately for LSU, Clemson is no Oklahoma. The defending champions are strong on both sides of the ball, and as such, LSU will need to be at full strength heading into their match-up.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire had no limitations at practice today, Orgeron said. #LSU

On Thursday, head coach Ed Orgeron offered an update on Edwards-Helaire. As it turns out, the team’s leading rusher participated in full practice this week and had “no limitations.”
Getting Edwards-Helaire back at full strength will be absolutely vital for Orgeron’s squad. It is the only way to ensure that Clemson doesn’t simply focus all its guns on Burrow.
Will Edwards-Helaire be 100 percent by gameday? We’ll find out once and for all come January 13.
